The Depot's Secret Garden

The beautiful gardens at The Depot sprouted from harsh conditions.  Very few plants can survive in this black soil.  Why?

The soil is not black because it is rich in nutrients but black from decades of cinders pilling up from coal-burning locomotives.

It took decades of determination and magical green thumbs to turn this bleak landscape into a garden of paradise.

All of the above pictures were taken by Gwen Wyatt.
