Yard of the Month – November 2015
November 1, 2015 - November 30, 2015
Nominated by neighbor Richard Mattson, 1907 Kenwood has personality, energy, and spirit with raised beds and a small make-shift wooden produce stand located by the street. Resident Bobbie Mabe describes her yard as a work in progress – constantly moving toward an edible landscape. Over the last few years she and her family have derived a great amount of joy from transitioning their lawn to vegetable beds bordered by fruit trees and shrubs. This process began as a way to offer a hands on learning experience for her boys and food for her family. While those benefits are being realized, they have also gained a deeper connection with nature and our community, which she finds truly priceless. Bobbie credits thanks to all of her neighbors for their involvement in this progressive experiment and she looks forward to many more seasons of growing food, friends and community!
Congrats to Bobbie Mabe on winning the November 2015 and inaugural Plaza Midwood Yard of the Month!
The next winner will be chosen by December 10th – so get your holiday decorations up early! Please keep the nominations coming to YardOfTheMonth@PlazaMidwood.org
