Weyonia Shurn, 16, used to eat chips for breakfast and buy junk food from other students at her high school.

..

But after spending the last month mulching and weeding alongside almost 30 teenage workers at a 2-acre urban garden located in Lindsay Heights, Shurn said that, for the first time, she's interested in being healthy.

..

She fixes herself eggs in the morning and drinks water instead of soda. She knows what anise tastes like and how to plant tomatoes deep in the ground so that wind doesn't uproot them.

..

For more than 40 years, Alice's Garden has been exposing teenage staffers like Shurn, community volunteers and local residents to the long-standing but forgotten practice of cultivating fresh food in city spaces.

..

"I get told to eat right all the time, but without experiencing it, you won't do too much," Shurn said. "I never knew it could be so much better than canned, artificial foods."

The Milwaukee County-owned garden is usually open from April to mid-November. It includes 127 rental farming plots and grass- and herb-padded spaces where a men's circle, reading groups and yogis also meet.

..

Money from the rental plots helps pay water bills and cover basic necessities, and the rest of the garden's operations are funded by grants and partnerships with local foundations and organizations.

$3 Million Renovation to Botanical Gardens is Underway

1,200-pound cycad moved after 70 years

As the initial phases of the $3 million renovation at the Buffalo & Erie County Botanical Gardens began to take shape shortly after Memorial Day, it was clear the prickly cycad had to be moved. The 500-year-old, palmlike plant had lived happily for 70 years under the domes of the Victorian conservatory on South Park Avenue.

...

It had to be moved, said Todd Zintz, director of operations at the gardens. And we did the best we could with what we had to work with. It was archaic as it was ingenious. It took three people three days to gradually dig it out, and then it took another three people to move it onto a cart and into the big dome.

...

The 1,200-pound cycad which grows one inch a year and was donated in 1901 by John J. Albright was important to us, said David Swarts, president and CEO of the gardens.

...

Swarts was joined by a small group of county officials and garden enthusiasts who were gathered on the North Domes front lawn late Thursday morning to deliver the update on the garden project.

...

The county is providing the $3 million for the complete restoration of this building, said Erie County Executive Mark C. Poloncarz. The glass, as you see, was removed, as was the putty that held the glass in place. The problem was asbestos in the putty.

...

Work on the North Dome will include steel refurbishment and replacement, foundation and masonry repair, wood restoration and replacement, lighting upgrades, heating system repairs as well as the installation of a garden misting system.

...

We are celebrating the 115th birthday of the Botanical Gardens this year, said Swarts, who added that the attraction has been visited by many people over the century.

...

In 2014, the gardens welcomed more than 100,000 people to the tri-domed conservatory designed by Frederick A. Lord and Lords son-in-law William Addison Burnham of the firm Lord & Burnham.
