The Alex Wilson Community Garden’s 20th Anniversary Restoration project will connect residents to nature in a changing and intensifying downtown community. In preparation for the garden’s 20th anniversary, 43 native species of grasses, vines, shrubs, and trees will be planted, improving habitat for birds and pollinators. This unique and successful partnership model will sustain another 20 years of volunteer stewardship and could be an inspiration for other projects around the city.
