SOULSVILLE GARDEN + MURAL
This garden is a beacon of beauty at a very busy intersection. The neighborhood beautification group began an IOBY project to raise funds for a mural, plants, and benches. Future plans include solving the trash problem from surrounding businesses, adding additional plants, and finding doable ways to beautify the surrounding 3 corners. Watch how this meaningful historic spot blooms and grows with more community involvement.
