As we head into the winter season, work in the St Clare Garden will pause until Spring. Major hardscape projects, including all paths, shade structure on the main patio and water feature are in place, with installation of the paver Labyrinth planned for April. Due to the commitment of Jack DeRose, Ray Ward and the entire Buildings and Grounds crew, berms on the west side were built while planting of the first trees and shrubs continued late into November; furniture for the small group areas was also assembled. Ray, Sharon Devo, and Covenant Companion Shirley Justin-Wolff will continue their design work in anticipation of spring planting and completion of the garden in 2023.
With gratitude for all who are involved and have contributed to this project – your gifts are a blessing to the Community. More updates to come with the winter thaw!
