“Urban Oasis Community Garden at Maides Park.”

This weekend work started on creating a community garden at Maides Park.

This community garden, sponsored by Bank of America, is a partnership with Cape Fear Habitat for Humanity, City of Wilmington, the New Hanover County Arboretum Ability Garden & the Cooperative Extension.

The garden will provide volunteers with the benefits of home grown food and provide an educational resource too.

As you can see all hands were on deck and pitched in to help.

Shhh - Don't tell anyone.
Here is a sneak peak at the main feature of the new Welcome Garden.
The fountain was designed by local artist Andy Cobb, who is well known for his copper frog sculptures that have been exhibited twice at Airlie Gardens and can be found on display in gardens across the country.
