Here is a link to today's column in The Spokesman-Review:Cultivating community Cultivating community. Throughout the summer months, I enjoy profiling local gardeners and the beautiful gardens they've created.
Today is my first such profile is on Master Gardener and Peaceful Valley resident, Carol Bryan
. She was kind enough to allow me to traipse through her garden!
She has a lovely front-yard garden and has spread the joy of gardening in her neighborhood, which I think is terrific!
To the above left is part of her raised-bed vegetable, berry and herb garden. To the right is a view from her upstairs porch, where you can see the parking strips along the street that she has been very active in planting.
I'm a firm believer in the fact that we can all learn from each other and it's interesting seeing how others are growing a garden. I hope you'll enjoy hearing what makes Carol tick and what her approach to gardening is.
