Plaza Midwood Community Garden
Since yesterday was Earth Day, we thought we’d take you on a virtual trip to a place where the Charlotte community can be one with the environment. The Plaza Midwood Community Garden has graced Midwood Park in Charlotte since 2005 when residents of the neighborhood wanted to spruce up an unused section of the park. Members of the neighborhood come together to plant trees, flowers and herbs and everyone is welcome to be involved in the garden’s activities.
On the Plaza Midwood Neighborhood Association website, they state that the goal of the garden is to “create beautiful, horticulturally-rich space where children and adults can learn about preserving wildlife habitats, gardening with native plants, composting and other environmental-friendly practices.”
The ironwork art rail outside of the garden was designed by Laura Holtzapple of Groundworks Studio and fabricated and installed by Theron Ross of Artistic Ironworks.
