Wedge Garden is going to start highlighting one of our in-kind sponsors each week, in order to show our appreciation for all that they have done for the garden and the community.

This week's Sponsor is Van & Anne Fletcher and Family

Van & Anne Fletcher, with their three lovely kids, Jack, Luke and Sarah, live in Pullen Park Neighborhood. They have witnessed the garden go from an empty parcel to a neighborhood garden with just a few gardeners to a garden welcoming the city!

The Fletcher family has such an amazing presence in the garden! Last fall, Anne and the kids came out for the pumpkin-carving event and had the best time. Jack picked up all the seeds from the only fennel plant that survived and Luke is so sweet; he thanked us for inviting him to the special party. Last but certainly not least, Sarah has her birthday right around Service Raleigh each year! Even the Cupcake Shoppe comes out to celebrate with her; hopefully they’ll give us more cupcakes next year to help celebrate Sara! 

In 2014, we accomplished many things including a wonderful herb garden for the entire community. This project could not have been possible without Van & Anne’s sponsorship.  The herb garden has been such a great success; they are sponsoring it again this year! They feel the Wedge Garden is “Is a common ground for relationships to grow and lives to be touched!” and they have surely touched many lives by their sponsorship, for all the neighborhoods to enjoy! Thank you for all you’ve done!

We are planting the herb garden again, but this time we are taking requests. So what is your favorite herb? Please email with an herb of your choice and we will plant it.
We already have our first request – lots of Lemon Verbena for Trophy Brewing.
