Monarch Community Garden
Monarch is an incredible organization which provides support to thousands of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, mental illness and substance abuse challenges. In 2013 they initiated a project to use community gardens for the benefit of the people they serve. Graceful Roots was engaged to design the Monarch Garden in Albemarle, North Carolina. Utilizing raised beds for sensory and pollinator plants, the garden is an educational tool which helps promote the Monarch mission.
Testimonial: Graceful Roots did the design work for the Monarch community garden in Albemarle, NC. The design was professional and creative, easy to implement, and completed in a timely manner. The design was mindful of the resources available to us and to the final use of the garden---to assist in the treatment of people with developmental disabilities. The garden is in use today and will be of great benefit to this population. Jen at Graceful Roots did a great job and I highly recommend her to anyone with a garden or landscape project."
