When she's not helping customers with their gardens, Nancy spends her time at the Town of Tonawanda Community Peace Garden.
The garden was started by Nancy in 2013 as a labor of love. She saw the potential in a vacant lot next to a local bar and decided to act. After receiving permission from the owner, Nancy got right to work in making her vision a reality!
"It turned out we got more donations than we thought we could ever get. The garden took off - it's an amazing thing!"
Take what you need.
This is Nancy's policy when it comes to the garden, and it's a simple one. For Nancy, the community garden is about exactly that - the community.
One idea blossomed into a whole lot more!
Specifically, pumpkins, corn, rhubarb, spices & herbs, strawberries, tomatoes, lavender, tiger lilies...and of course sunflowers!
