Diamondhead Community Garden Growing

DIAMONDHEAD, MS (WLOX) - The Diamondhead Garden Club has added more green space to their already beautiful golf course community.

Wednesday, they dedicated three foot bridges in their nearly completed Community Garden on Diamondhead Drive East. It's part of Diamondhead's contribution to the Mississippi Renaissance Garden Project, which aims to add green spaces in areas left barren by Hurricane Katrina.

Susan Holcomb, Chairwoman of the Maluhia Garden Committee, said the name is a good description of what they hope this park will mean to the people of this community.

"It means a place of serenity and that's what we would want this place to be. We want people to come here and enjoy the beauty of nature. We want them to have a place to think and meditate," Holcomb said.

Holcomb said there is still some landscaping left to be done in the park. The group is holding a fundraiser September 26th to raise money for the installation of an irrigation system.
