Welcome Garden-This “old-fashioned” garden features fragrant roses and herbal companion plants.
The roses are hybrids developed Dr. Griffith Buck to emphasize lovely fragrance with repeat flowering. The companion herbs include lavender, thyme, catmint and scented geranium. This herbal theme is continued in the stone-wall raised bed surrounding the side porch, constructed by Carrie Goodell in 1937. Now a Kitchen Garden, calendula, sage, lemon thyme, basil and oregano thrive here. This garden is sponsored by the Kubeja-Richardson Fund of the Erie Community Foundation.
