When our friend Jess brought Tim Sprengelmeyer to visit our group to talk about garden trellises, we had no idea what would come of it!  We just knew we had some money left from our Willy Street Reinvestment Grant. In our conversation we learned that he loved to sculpt & that he was deeply committed to sustainable practice. It just doesn’t get any better that this!

There will be 5 more in various forms, one for each of our raised beds & inspired by the visions of the women who sat with our garden design last year, allowed images to rise & then put their ideas on paper.  I believe the sculptures  are  there as I type & I can’t wait to see them today!

The raised beds are so beautiful & just about ready for this year’s planting. This lovely crocus popped up in one of them!  Joy will bring us more compost for the last boxes. K&A Distributing Co. gave us a huge donation of tiles. Several will form the basis for a surface we hope will be wheelchair accessible. Spring is here & we are ready!
