The Benson Community Garden is encouraging neighbors, especially families at home with kids, to create and share artwork with messages of hope, love, friendship, and gardening.

These are difficult times and we would like to do something positive for people to express themselves and share it with the neighborhood.

We have a large fence on which we intend to display the artwork to give others in the area a reason to get out and enjoy it.

If you are interested in participating, please paint a message on wood or other weather-resistant material, then send an email to
