Placitas Community Library Garden - AfterPlacitas Community Library Garden - After

Gardens have so much to offer and they enrich our lives in so many ways. Here is a garden I designed and planted as a donation to the Placitas Community Library several years ago. This wonderful library was the result of efforts by the little community of Placitas (in the foothills just north of Albuquerque, New Mexico) to provide a community center and a place for the school kids to come read and study. The good folks there raised all the money and oversaw the entire process to create this wonderful addition to their town. And of course, a group of Placitas area Master Gardeners were right in the thick of things helping to landscape the exterior of the building. They contacted me and asked if I would design and plant the flower bed on behalf of High Country Gardens at the front of the building. I was happy to do so and here are photos of my efforts at the library.

If you know of a worthwhile charity or non-profit in your community that would benefit from a beautiful, water-wise garden check out our HCG Good Cause Garden Giveaway Contest and I will design and donate the plants and soil amendments to make it a reality. All the winning organization will need to do is gather the labor to get the garden installed according to the plans that I provide.
