THE SECRET GARDENERS (Karen Abboud, Babette Beaullieu, Stacey Stanfill, Belinda Tanno) Growth
5670 Hawthorne Pl (backyard), Lakeview I UNVEILING: SAT NOV 8, 2-5 PM Further viewing by appointment only

“The Secret Gardeners are constructing an environmental installation to promote awareness of life’s interconnectedness and honor the new growth sprung from a 100 year old pecan tree ravaged by the Federal levee breaks of Hurricane Katrina. Combining built and rescued/found objects with the natural components of a wildly overgrown Lakeview backyard. The Secret Gardeners are creating a space for meditation and wonderment in the midst of destruction.”
