2020-2021 BCRTA SECRET GARDEN AT THE BROWN COUNTY HEALTH AND LIVING MEMORY CARE WING  

It was an unusual year at the BCHL Secret Garden.  Because of Covid restrictions, there were only two people going into the garden every week.  Jan and Susan teamed up to take care of the garden, meeting every Friday (with their masks on) to deadhead flowers, water, and weed.  Residents helped water the flowers during the week or Jan and Susan took turns coming in to water during hot and dry periods.  Staff at the BCHL met us outside to unlock the garden gate and cheer us on with kind words before returning to work.  During the summer, Jan and Bill dug up unattractive or overgrown plants and bushes and repurposed them.
