Information from Elizabeth Isles, City of Dublin Heritage Park—

High School junior Rachel Bagwell wrote to Mayor Sbranti and offered to lead an effort to build some gardens at the Heritage Park.  

Bagwell worked with city staffer Elizabeth Isles and Heritage Garden Volunteer Leads Jim and Sue Farr to get the project off the ground.  

“Peterson in the Community” donated funds and labor to build three garden beds.  The beds were constructed on May 3.  

Girls from the Daisy Girl Scout Troop 33227, led by Shelly Lumm, came a week after the beds were built and planted with corn, beans, tomatoes and melons to release ladybugs and worms and plant marigolds by to help keep pests away.
