A Franklin couple who own a downtown business have a vision for a new landscaped garden downtown that includes sculptures and a sitting area.
Richard Goss and Meg Jones looked at the vacant lot south of their business, Richard’s Market, and can see nearby Province Park. They have planned a garden that would connect to the park and include a hedge maze, trees, shrubs, flowers, a gravel Zen garden and sculptures.
The Franklin Development Corp. will provide $90,000 toward the total $200,000 garden. The organization approved the garden as one of nine projects totaling about $900,000 in grant funds.
