Tree of Lanterns of Gratitude - Garland Community Garden, Garland, Texas
The Winter Solstice event hosted jointly by Loving Garland Green and the Garland Area Makerspace was a success. Instead of stockings, lanterns (made from recycled soda cans) were hung with care at the Garland Community Garden.
In addition to adding lanterns to the tree, visitors took their photos and photos of their children in front of "Garden Wings",, a participatory art installation at the garden. While we can't guarantee this will make them better gardeners in 2019, it will remind them that we often soar to new heights on wings of knowledge, experience and caring from others.
