Campaign to Restore the Garden at Ashland
Boxwood Blight Strikes Ashland Garden
A highly-contagious fungal disease known as BOXWOOD BLIGHT infected the decades-old boxwood bushes in the formal garden at Ashland. As a result, nearly 500 boxwood bushes were removed from the garden at Ashland.
We need your support!
Obviously this first phase was an extremely costly procedure. Additional resources are necessary for a complete re-design of the garden layout as well as the purchase of new plant material.
The pandemic put a spotlight on the importance of the safe respite that the garden provided the community. Now it needs your help.
