Jackson's Joy

Jackson's Joy has been created!!!

In Jackson's memory, we will be building a beautiful gazebo in an alcove at St Michael's Farm Preserve.

As most of you know, Jackson loved all creatures great and small, so our family wants to honor his love of nature.
This will be a peaceful place to sit under a custom-made rustic wood structure and look out at the fields of wildflowers, or listen to the stream.
You will be able to watch bees, bugs, birds and butterflies.
His kindness and compassion for all living things will be evident in the surrounding wildlife.
His strength and loyalty will be apparent in the locally sourced materials.
This retreat is designed by local artisan, David Robinson and under the guidance of Linda Mead and Bill Flemer of the D&R Greenway,
It will be called Jackson's Place and we plan on a dedication around his birthday in April 2021.
As we move forward we will create more wildflower gardens and nature houses to attract the many polinators. We will add an educational component, so that visitors can learn about the many plants, trees, birds, bugs and butterflies. We also hope to provide Braille signs.
