With no further business, Marcy McTier introduced Mimosa Member, Sally Smith, who gave us an interesting history of The Quarry Garden. Sally spoke specifically about Louise Allen’s role in the founding of the Garden. Sally also shared her guidebook to the Quarry Garden that she had published some years ago. Everyone then joined tour guide, Gay Jolly, for a short tour of the Garden.
