 Washington, DC
—One year ater the tragic death o Capitol Hill resident Kim Brenegaron October 9, 2009, her riends and amily are gathering to create a beautiul garden in hermemory. Friends o Kim Brenegar announced today its partnership with the DC Departmento Parks and Recreation (DPR) to redesign, restore and maintain a Capitol Hill park tobe called “Kim’s Garden” in honor o the long-time resident. Kim was ounder o TeOrnamental Garden, a DC landscape business that she owned and operated. Te gardenproject, approved by the Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC6B), is located at theintersection o 8th Street SE, Independence Avenue and North Carolina Avenue, next toChrist Our Shepherd Church.Tis park was established by the National Park Service in the 1890s as Reservation 232 andceded to the DC park system in 1973. Over many years, Kim donated her time and resourcesto maintaining the trapezoid-shaped site when it most needed care. “I didnt know her name,but she always took the time to talk to me,” a man recently said crossing the site. “I know  what you are planning or the park. It’s a good thing. I really miss her,” he continued, “And sodoes the park.”Tis site couldn’t be more appropriate as a dedication to Kim’s lie and her love o nature andthe Hill,” said Kim’s fancé, Joe Ardizzone. “Kim saw beauty and innocence all around her. What better way to honor her memory than to come together as a community and createbeauty once again.”Renovations will be directed by Friends o Kim Brenegar, a volunteer group o proessionalsrom several disciplines. Plans include a new landscape supervised by local horticulturist Jim Adams, as well as a mixed media centerpiece by artist Deirdre Saunder. Detailso the extensive restoration may be ound on the Friends o Kim Brenegar blog:http://kimsgardendc.blogspot.com/.
