She’s got style, she’s got grace…


if you have ever stepped into Cedar Grove Gardens it’s obvious that Lisa’s footprint is evident throughout the shop.

Congratulations Lisa on your Good Neighbor Award!

Lisa’s is well recognized around the shop for her creativity and keen eye for displaying beautiful treasures, she is the gift buyer responsible for making our hidden gem and tiny piece of Dorchester as sweet as it is. These are great attributes for sure but such a minute part of who she really is. From setting up gorgeous wedding venues to decorating homes for Christmas or perhaps designing that perfect front door wreath, she really has a gift,  if Lisa has a hand in decorating for you, you know you are getting quality work.  As a Cedar Grove Gardens staff member for many years, let’s just say that she exudes talent and we are beyond excited that others have recognized her strengths and her love for all things nature and awarded her this week with the very deserving “Good Neighbor Award”. Lisa’s neighborhood pride/ friendship and her love for her neighboring Dorchester Park was probably a large part in what lead to this special recognition and her latest endeavor “goatskaping” It sure has got everyone talking, even beyond the neighborhood. The goats have done an amazing job at snacking away at invasive plants and clearing away brambles and poison ivy, all while keeping children and adults entertained. At last tally her incredible efforts have accomplished raising over $3,700 of her 10,000 goal and counting, this effort is to keep the goats munching and keeping Dorchester Park looking it’s best. These curious and intelligent  unusual workers cost $400. a week to employ, goats are herbivores (plant-eaters) so they are enjoying their job as we enjoy having them.

A quote from Lisa “Please spread the word about the go fund me campaign and let’s make us a model for other community based city park projects”  Here is a link to the go fund me page, any amount no matter how small is appreciated
