A Thoughtful Message from Owner & Director Dawn Powell

When I was a young 11-year-old girl, I had a newspaper route and as I delivered my papers I always noticed how pretty people's gardens looked.  At home, I tried to put what I saw into my parent's small garden.  As I got older, I had a strong desire to make this my life's work in the various communities that I lived.  Part of what I learned was in books and working closely with neighborhood groups to better myself.

In the late 1990's, I purchased my 1st vacant property so that I could incorporate many of the things I learned into my own garden. In the mid-2000's, I helped organize early kinds of sustainable community gardens that would help families grow their own fruits and vegetables in a "Food Dessert" that we made beautiful to thrive again.

Now in this decade, I have my own "Forever Garden", Tree Orchard and an Heirloom Organic Garden.  This year, I will complete a Healing Garden for those individuals who are suffering from painful illnesses.  This garden will be a peaceful setting where people can come to plant their favorite, fruits, herbs and vegetables in raised handicapped garden beds.  I have also participated in helping may neighborhoods build new community gardens.

My future endeavors will include:  An Ecology & Educational Center, with a Master Plan of what can be done to preserve our Planet Earth.  A Memorial Baseball Park, housing the man who brought Baseball to Milwaukee in the early 1920's Otto Borchert which is located in the "Borchert Field" community.  Where there are 168 neighborhood Communities within the Milwaukee County area.
