The Kent Environmental Council presented Kent resident Doria Daniels with the 2021 Edith Chase Conservation Award for her work in Kent’s Historic South End.
This award was given to Daniels after leading the efforts of the Thomas-Anderson Memorial Garden that is in Kent’s Historic South End. Daniels donated the land for the garden, located at 1110 Walnut St.
The community garden was made possible by over 30 volunteers who continuously came together to plant the multiple flower beds, fruits and vegetables.
Daniels explained that the project is more than a garden, but rather a way of “pulling the community together.”
