2013 IPL Project GreenSpace: Center of Wellness for Urban Women

2447 Bond St.


Center of Wellness for Urban Women, Inc (CWUW), founded in 2007, empowers women and their families to become proactive in their health by improving the mind, body, and spirit through education, advocacy, care, and prevention. Through this project they have four goals: Education of Community Gardening, Neighborhood BeautificationFood Sustainability and Garden Therapy. We hope to accomplish these goals by adding beautification elements to the property, specifically, Miss Mary’s Garden; including landscaping, art elements, and a free/share library box.

With benches finished and fruit trees in, we have made significant progress at Miss Mary’s garden.  Volunteers diligently cleared brush piles, watered, weeded, and mulched.  After constructing a large fence that beautifully defines the edges of the garden, a compost bin and small deck for activities was also constructed.
