Fun Facts About: They volunteered to completely re-design and carry out the design implementation in two separate main exhibit areas: The Retrofit-Backyard Makeover and The Meadow. Additionally, Vince has built hundreds of birdhouses to donate for Garden fundraising.

Favorite Garden Exhibit: For Kay it’s the Erosion Control exhibit, although she admits to having several favorites; for Vince it’s the Retrofit-Backyard Makeover Exhibit–and why not?
