A Big Invitation to Visit a Tiny Garden

Of course you know that you can adopt a furry, four-legged companion at the Euclid Animal Shelter, but did you know that there are gardens in Euclid that are available for adoption through the Keep Euclid Beautiful Adopt-A-Spot program?

One such garden is the area bordering the Mary Mavec Opportunity School parking lot which has been adopted by two local residents who are helping to keep it weed free and looking good. This year, a unique collaboration has sprouted between the clients of the School and the residents who adopted this Spot; and they are delighted to invite you to tour their Fairy Garden during the Euclid Pond and Garden Tour on Saturday, July 21, from 1-5 p.m. and on Sunday, July 22, from 1-6 p.m.

The Mary Mavec Opportunity School provides a welcoming environment for adults with developmental disabilities. The Fairy Garden has been created by clients of the School using recycled and found objects. Come peek at miniature houses of all shapes, sizes, and colors along with garden décor created from acorns, corks, cheese containers, and more. You might even catch a glimpse of one of the garden's wee residents. Shhhh......they're a bit shy!

Everyone is welcome to visit the Fairy Garden, and we hope it inspires you to create one in your own yard.

Visit our garden at Mary Mavec Opportunity School, 21701 Lakeshore Boulevard, Euclid, during the Pond and Garden Tour. Tickets for this and all the gardens are available at the Euclid City Hall Recreation Department Window, Briardale Greens Golf Course, Lakeshore Coffee House, and Maria's Family Restaurant.
