What:: Visit the garden of Charlotte Dodgson
When: August 24, 10 a.m.
Where: 2940 W Darleen Dr in Cheshire
Details: Charlotte writes: I purchased my home in 2005 and the previous owner described the yard as being "dog ready", meaning that nothing was growing anywhere around the property. It took me five years to remove lots of gravel, dying trees, put in flower beds, and fix a massive water problem that flooded the front yard every time it rained and the water from the street and runoff from the roof brought water onto the front porch and almost into the house. Driving Directions: 180 to Freemont, Left. When Freemont becomes two lanes instead of 4 lanes Darleen is on the Left. The house is the second on the right. White with black trim and yellow shutters. Three can park in the drive way if they park as far to the left and right as possible then someone can park in the middle, or anywhere on the street.

This year we planted tomatoes in a new bed next to the front porch and the tomatoes love it. We also store about 1800 gallons of rain water.”
