AGC Supports Restoration in Goldsmith Garden at Hale Farm & Village

Goldsmith Garden1The Akron Garden Club has supported $5,000 in improvement efforts in the 19th century Goldsmith Garden at Hale Farm & Village, part of a multiyear restoration of the garden as a demonstration site for education and a space for community engagement.  In 2016, the club funded the rebuilding of the stone-lined center-axis pond, the garden’s central feature.  In 2018, the club helped to complete the final phase of the garden restoration by funding removal of existing path material, repairing the foundation of the pathways and resurfacing the paths with compactible stone.  The rejuvenated pathways permit easier entry to the Goldsmith Garden and make it wheelchair and stroller accessible.
