As you might guess. it takes me a while to get to blogging as this visit was in April 2015..too many other things seem to get in the way. But I want to tell about the Secret Gardens of Royal Square in York, PA.
I am familiar with Royal Square as I used to exhibit in King’s Courtyard which is a collective gallery on E. King St. It took considerable work to clear out the back areas as they were completely overgrown. But teamwork and great efforts prevailed and now there is the best “secret” garden for all to enjoy. Much of this was spearheaded by Annalisa Gojmerac. You can keep up with the plans and updates by going to https://www.facebook.com/royalgardenseries/?fref=nf
It was a rainy Saturday in April when I toured the gardens. Not too many people showed up for the scheduled tour as it was REALLY rainy…but I was prepared and ready to go. Here are some pictures from that tour. And Annalisa was so full of information and so passionate about her garden that some rain certainly did not dampen our enthusiasm.
So you can see the creativity and the hard work that went into making this a very special place….a lovely place to visit.
The vegetables that were raised were donated to Healthy World Cafe.
This is a perfect example to me of community work and community support for the greater good.
