The Laurey Masterton Memorial Garden at the YWCA

The students at Asheville Design Center’s DesignBuild Studio created plans for a pavilion and an edible garden, which will rest in an unused green space at the top of the stairs. The garden’s design includes hexagon-shaped raised beds clustered together in the shape of a honeycomb, an homage to Masterton’s passion for beekeeping. Children in the YWCA’s after-school and summer programs also contributed ideas for the garden, including art installations of bees and honeycombs that will be built into the surrounding fence.
