|The Chula Vista Public Library is proud to announce the dedication of the Fragrant Garden at the South Chula Vista Library, 389 Orange Avenue. The event is scheduled for 11 a.m. on Monday, November 19. All plants being placed in the garden are native plants and are used in Native American traditions. The central point of the dedication will be a Native American blessing ceremony conducted by Randy Edmonds, a Tribal Elder.
The California Native Plant Society and the Chula Vista Garden Club worked to replant the original garden, located in an interior courtyard at the library and which had been unused for some time, with fragrant native plants. It will become an educational resource for the community and a place of pleasant relaxation for visitors and staff. Twenty-seven plants of eleven different species have been installed, and will be labeled so that visitors can improve their knowledge of native plants. As the plants grow, they will fill the garden with color, fragrance, and motion.
