Emma's Garden - Dedicated September 2018

BUILDING & GROUNDS

 The Building and Grounds Committee is responsible for the maintenance of the  building and property, including routine building and landscape  maintenance, repairs, and building projects.


In 2018 Building and Grounds (with many helpers) transformed the outdoor patio space in  front of the Meeting House into a lovely enclosed garden, complete with  slate pathway, a trellis for a grape arbor, garden/flower plots and an  open area for future use, perhaps by the children.  Thanks to generous  donations of furniture, the enclosed garden also provides a lovely  sitting area and a round picnic table, complete with umbrella for  shade. 


The garden was officially dedicated in fall 2018 as “Emma’s  Garden,” “El Jardín de Emma,” in recognition of the many gifts that Emma  brought to our community during her long sojourn in Sanctuary between  2017-18.  In 2019, final touches have been added to the garden,  increasing its use by members and attenders of Albuquerque Monthly  Meeting.


Thanks to those who helped bring our vision to fruition including:

Jim Dudley, Jim Malone, John Penery, Ben Maseman, Miguel Franco, Robert Morales, Sara Keeney, and Matt Brackbill.  Let us know if we missed someone!


 Building and Grounds also engages in more  routine tasks, both inside and outside of the Meeting House.  Volunteers  are always needed and welcome!  If interested in helping out, please  contact Building & Grounds Clerk, Jim Malone at jsmalone59@gmail.com.
