Swansons Nursery, the Ballard Boys & Girls Club, and the Ballard Chamber of Commerce Host Grow With Us Project Garden Dedication and Art Installation

WHAT: During the week of July 7, Swansons Nursery completed a community gardening and landscaping project at the Ballard Boys & Girls Club. By transforming an overgrown rain garden and a high-traffic grassy area near the clubhouse entrance into a sustainable art garden and parklett, club-goers now have a two beautiful new outdoor spaces to enjoy.
