Members from the Ensign Robert Wilson Society, Children of the American Revolution adopted 2 cradle grave gardens last week. Tania Walts, Abigail Kemp and Jana Kemp planted, mulched and watered under the watchful eye of mom, Amy Walts, Grandmother Betty Vinch and Spectrum news Journalist Andrew Freeman. Andrew contacted the Friends of Mt. Hope and wanted to do a story on our cradle grave garden program and catch gardeners in action. The Stern family plot contains four cradle gardens. Spectrum News interviewed the girls about the Children of the American Revolution and their participation in this project.
As the C.A.R. emphasizes community service and historic preservation, this will be their summer project. Over the next few months, the girls will visit regularly to weed and water. They are planning to clean the stones. The girls will also do some genealogical research and see what they can learn about this prestigious family. Hopefully they will share their research in our new website!
These cradle gardens are located in Range 2 on 2nd Ave. If any of our readers are interested in adopting a cradle grave, please contact me.
