Liberty Garden Planting
Scottsdale Pride Commission plants Liberty Garden
The Scottsdale Pride Commission an affiliate of Keep America Beautiful planted a Liberty Garden in Civic Center Mall on Friday, November 13, 2009. The Liberty Garden movement was started by Keep America Beautiful, a national non-profit public educational organization, as a way to commemorate September 11th.
In a visible gesture of patriotism, numerous cities throughout the United States have made a tradition of planting Liberty Gardens. The Liberty Garden concept focuses on planting flowers in the shape and color of the American flag. With help from Civic Center parks staff, several Scottsdale Pride Commissioners planted the small garden replicating the American Flag. Stop by and visit the garden which is planted on the west side of the Scottsdale City Hall Building.
