The Historic American Landscape Survey (HALS) is a federal program created to document historic landscapes in the U.S. (administered through the National Park Service). In 2013 HALS ran a challenge: “Documenting the Cultural Landscape of Women”…and it was announced November 16, 2013, that Gaiety Hollow won first place!!!! There’s a cash prize which hopefully can be put toward the purchase of the garden…don’t forget, we’re still raising money! Help preserve this treasure right in our own town!
If you want to volunteer to help in the garden on Fridays (roughly from 9-12) contact Bobbie Dolp at email@example.com. Weeding is underway…(weeding is almost ALWAYS underway, I’ve noticed!) but the schedule may vary during the holidays.
Thanks, Bonnie, for setting up this great blog! I volunteer in the home garden, and find it to be wonderful to learn about L&S’s designs and their plant selections. What a great group of other volunteers too!
