This is how it all began in 2010!
You've Come a Long Way, Baby!
After the library was completed in 2009, the area behind the library was strewn with construction debris and overrun with weeds. Our founders had a vision it could be something else, something beautiful and educational. Thus, the birth of what we call the Demonstration Garden, featuring plants adaptable to a variety of climates and growing zones.
