Daniel Pearson planted a low-maintenance cover crop of violets in the backyard of his Lawson Place residence. The violets don’t need to be mowed, keep the ground from getting waterlogged and provide a tasty treat to Pearson, he said. Pearson worries herbicides will be used to kill the vegetation, which is out of compliance with the property owners, Greene Metropolitian Housing Authority. (Photo by Megan Bachman)

Tour Lawson Place gardens

Friends of the Lawson Place gardens invite the community to attend a garden tour on Thursday, Aug. 16 at 4 p.m.  The gardens are scheduled to be removed by Greene Metropolitan Housing Authority on Oct. 1, pending the success of an alternative agreement.  The fate of the gardens depends on community support, so all those who are interested are invited to attend and check the gardens out for themselves.

The tour begins at the residence of Patricia High, unit 15.  Refreshments will be served.

For more on the Lawson Place gardens and their pending removal, read a June story from the Yellow Springs News.
