A possible Win-Win…

I have my hand out here.

Once again I’ve been asked to create a garden for ‘Mansions in May’,  a local designer show house that will benefit Morristown Memorial Hospital, specifically the Emergency Services Unit.

I want to give back in as many ways as I can so I  put my own spin on the process this year by creating an organic producing vegetable garden, depicted in the plan.  The produce harvested in the 1/4 acre garden and orchard will be donated to a local soup kitchen.

The Orchard

I have already taken on several partners who are donating goods and services including a landscape contractor, a master carpenter, a nursery, a  lumber supplier and a stone yard who will be announced if we are able to build the garden.  With all of the donated labor and materials we are still coming up 5-6K short.   The garden will have high local visibility and will be promoted via the Mansion staff and my own.  It is a wonderful opportunity to give back to the community.  If you know of someone–corporate or otherwise who would be willing to help make this project happen please contact me using the contact tab above.

    What an admirable project, Miss R!
    I wish you all the best and feel certain you’ll find local support for such a worthy design.
    I’ll look forward to seeing photos of the garden …. come May.

    Thanks, Alice. We’ve got our fingers crossed.
