The desire for a dedicated green space at the center of our community inspired the Island Inn Commons landscape. Like all gardens, this effort will evolve, eventually encompassing the entire site. In the next year, the project will concentrate primarily on the main area along Highway 12. The garden will feature a variety of native species enhanced with proven ornamentals, perennials, and bulbs. There is also a fig orchard, planted with the help of local students. The park-like space will provide a shady respite with seating and picnic areas adjacent to our Scenic Byway. Public restrooms are also being planned for the site.
