The Given Garden (on the corner of Given and Holmes) is making plans for this Spring and Summer. It may not look like much now but there are some big plans for the garden. We have heard rumors that kids would love to paint the fence on the north side of the garden, and well….that sounds great to us! In addition to a mural on the fence, a group of math students from Collegiate Academy are working hard on a mosaic made entirely of Dominos that will soon liven up the garden. And if all that wasn’t enough Revered Scott from New Tyler AME Church just announced that they are pledging funds to support the garden this summer.
If you would like to be involved in growing fruits and vegetables or making the lot into a park, please leave us in a message and we will follow-up
We have all felt the burden of rising food costs and seen first hand what poor nutrition can do to the body. It is the hope of the community that this garden becomes a haven for all that is good for us and all that is good about of neighborhood.
