People across the country are celebrating public gardens today.
The American Gardens Public Association says gardens enrich communities. Goodell Gardens and Homestead is working to raise awareness of that benefit by offering tours and free admission.
Amber Wellington, Assistant Director of Goodell Gardens & Homestead, says, “It’s just really important that we recognize that humans are not just here by ourselves; and that we’re surrounded by this beautiful nature, especially in this region.”
The region is home to other public gardens like Erie’s International Flavors Community Garden on West 18th Street.
