Our first meeting of the Garden Group at Benedictine living showed more reluctance than concrete action. Marian, the only gardener for the nine raised garden beds, was resigning at the age of 96. Our three ASC’s, M. Alan Wurth, Frances Newton, and myself, were eager to start but had many questions about this new opportunity.
