Washington Street East/ Sidney Avenue The Living AIDS Memorial Garden since 1 December 1998
Day of Service
Master Gardeners were involved in two Day of Service projects today. The biggest was the Living AIDS Memorial Garden near the Capitol. The beautiful garden exists as a memorial to those who have passed on from AIDS. Memorial bricks line the walks and gardens. The garden itself is a monument to creativity and determination – the soil in which the garden grows is only about 12″ deep in places and it sits on asphalt and debris. Huge trees and plants flourish and create a secret garden of serenity. Master Gardeners helped weed, prune and plant flowers.
