The project began when plants from an older "Grandma's Garden" were relocated by MG Interns to the new site in Pioneer park. The interns prepared the compacted soil, then created a new design of winding paths, and blooming beds at the site of the old cotton gin. Many additional heirloom plants supplement the originals. LCMGA maintains the garden with a weekly work party. Pioneer Park is open to the public the second Saturday of each month.
Decorative features like bottle edging and split-log benches delight visitors to Grandma's Garden. The garden is a great place to see plants that thrive in our climate.
