Knitting Mill Creek Community Garden wanted to plant a display garden to expose passersby to tried and true plants that they could plant in their own yards. Covid was still in full swing, but they interpreted the theme of ‘Diversity” by planting edibles along with ornamentals and native pollinator plants – a little something for everyone! Their spring educational event for the public featured tomatoes – the different types, growing conditions for success, etc. It also provided an open space during the pandemic that they could visit and feel safe because it was outdoors and because they required masks and social distancing. This garden became a safe haven for a hugely diverse group – gardeners, neighbors and their children, and people from around the city trying to find a little beauty and joy during a very stressful time in their lives. The garden provided a respite from all the stress and provided a constantly evolving place of peace and beauty.
