Who Is That Masked Stranger in the South Garden?

Visitors to the South Garden on the Boulevard last week may have encountered a willowy masked woman carrying two large jugs of water. The water offered a clue to her identity: it was BPC volunteer Peggy Edwards, the horticulturist who tends this once wild and now-tidy space.

On her own initiative Peggy recently won a small grant from the Rhode Island Wild Plant Society that enabled her to buy the new native plants.

Any volunteers interested in taking on the little Witherby statue garden or the larger Trolley Shelter garden should click here to contact us.
