Group seeks volunteers for community garden project

By David Elliott - bio | email

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - If you wander into Martha Boyce's backyard, you'll find an array of flowers and plants. Boyce calls it her "inspiration garden."

"It's the serenity and peace that lets me connect with the earth," Boyce said.

Martha is on a mission. She's spearheading an effort to bring a series of public gardens to south Mississippi. The Mississippi Renaissance Garden Foundation is raising money to build a spectacular garden in Biloxi's Hiller Park.

The city has given the group about one and a half acres for what Boyce describes as a Horticulture for Humanity Garden. The group is looking for sponsors and volunteers.

"It can improve tourism and enhance the quality of life for all of the Gulf Coast," Boyce said.

For more information on the foundation, call (228) 388-2622.
