2016 Arbor Day Dedication to Honor Kathy Brown

Friday, April 29th is Arbor Day and the Helena Garden Club will be honoring member Kathy Brown who passed away in 2012 – http://helenafuneralhome.com/obituaries/katherine-elizabeth-brown.   Kathy was a kind and compassionate person always putting the needs of other above her own.  Everyone is invited to come and dedicate a Good Mac apple tree in her honor.  The dedication will take place at Noon between the culinary, edible and medicinal patch in the 6th Ward Garden Park, 1235 Bozeman Avenue (just east of the Helena Area Transit terminal) in Helena, Montana.  Enter through southwest corner entrance to the park.

This newly planted edible forest is a fitting location for the tree.The 6th Ward Garden Parks and the Helena Garden Club greatly appreciated this opportunity to recognize Kathy as a person whose life connected people, food, and nature. What better way to honor a chef extraordinaire than to plant a tree that will continue to feed the local community for years to come.  We will be using the tools donated last year by the Ames Companies for this project during the dedication ceremony.  For more information check out the press release.

    How wonderfully thoughtful of the Helena Garden Club to remember and honor Kathy Brown in this way. Feeding people was her passion, and she would be so pleased to have a tree planted in her honor that will feed the local community for years to come. She would have loved the Edible Forest.

    I , along with other members of her family, are truly delighted to be able to attend this dedication to one so dear and so missed.

    What a wonderful way to celebrate Kathy Brown. Her life was filled with giving and sharing the many gifts she had to offer. She would have delighted in the planting of a tree in the edible garden.
