The Warner Reading Garden
A Beautiful Plan, in the Grassroots Tradition
Yvonne, here is where we will put a paragraph about how the committee started and the current status.
A Town Where People Still Walk
The concept of the Warner Reading Garden Path resonates with so many other elements of the surrounding community. Kensington is a town where people walk - we are fortunate to have many gardens and green spaces, as well as life's conveniences in walking distance, so it is fitting to create a "journey" garden.
Kensington is an intergenerational town - children grow up knowing older neighbors, so it is fitting to honor the Nursing Home that was in the Mansion for decades by creating a space that appeals to a wide range of ages and invites interaction between generations.
Kensington is a town of readers, of artists, and of gardeners, so it is fitting to give residents and different community groups the opportunity to design and /or sponsor a "niche" of the curvilinear Garden Path.
And finally, the tie to Noyes Children's Library reminds us that children love a journey, love surprises, love finding favorite spots and coming back to them. This is the magic that the Warner Reading Garden Path can create for children, and the child in all of us.
The garden will encompass a path made from pervious pavers, wandering through the northeast section of the Warner property toward the street shared by Noyes Children's Library.
