There has been a groundbreaking ceremony for yet another Open Spaces Sacred Places. To continue celebrating the legacy of Susie Parker Stringfellow, the Community Foundation of Northeast Alabama partnered with the City of Ashland to begin construction on the Stringfellow Garden.
The community seeks to reverse the stigma of economic depression through the creation of a sacred place within the Stringfellow Garden. The garden will be a place for reflection and meditation. Fire Sole Kim Cain shares why she believes the garden will be very important to the community.
The designer and builder of the Stringfellow Garden who is a resident of Ashland says she is ready to get started on the project. The City of Ashland received a grant for $10,000 from the Community Foundation of Northeast Alabama. Construction on the Stringfellow Garden is expected to begin later this month.
