Over the weekend, the Wedge Garden hosted a Jane’s Walk featuring an herb-planting event with the NCSU Alumni of Wake County. We even got a visit from Mr. Wuf, the NCSU mascot!! Above is Mr. Wuf with Lucinda Lietz, a local Pullen Park resident.
Jane’s Walk is a movement of free, citizen-led walking tours inspired by Jane Jacobs. The walks get people to tell stories about their communities, explore their cities, and connect with neighbors. The Wedge Garden aims to do just that and so, the two made a perfect combination on a beautiful Saturday morning! During the herb planting, Wedge hosted NCSU Alumni, HCAC Officers, Richard Calahan, who sponsored the walk, and many NCSU students and neighborhood kids. Various herbs were planted including basil, Kentucky mint, dill, tarragon, oregano, and rue (to attract all the butterflies!)
As many of you know, the herb garden is a communal garden sponsored by Van and Anne Fletcher; for the second year now! So come, stop by and check out the herb garden at 214 Park Avenue! The street is under construction, but you can park on Flint, Dexter or Cox. Take the IHOP street (Park Ave) and walk south. It will be on your right side with a purple sign that says "This Garden is Making a Big Impact".
