Aimee Powell – The Garden Project
The Garden Project is an initiative created by longtime gardener, Karen Boyd, as way to give back to the Abilene community. As a member of The Episcopal Church of the Heavenly Rest, she reached out to other parishioners to make her vision turn into reality.
Members Amanda and Tom Watson donated a plot of land and the project was underway. Karen shared her vision and idea has now turned into reality.
The Garden Project will turn a vacant lot into a flourishing garden that will supply people in the neighborhood with fresh produce. The plans includes keyhole gardens, raised gardens and fruit trees that will feed both the heart and soul of all involved. Neighbors are encouraged to plant in the garden and take part in every aspect of the project.
