HGTV Plant Collection Makes a Difference For Kokomo, Indiana
Kokomo, Indiana is my hometown; a small town in central Indiana where I was born. Without a doubt, my grandmother’s helped stimulate my passion for gardening in their country gardens near the city. I grew up climbing trees, crawdaddy fishing, and picking wildflowers on a farm in it’s outer limits, went to Northwestern High School, and learned from an early age in this small town that hard work and family were fundamental to life. For the last eight years the city has worked hard to revitalize parts of Kokomo by creating a beautiful, welcoming community via flower displays throughout the spring and summer seasons. As a part of the initiative to beautify the city in 2014 the HGTV Plant Collection selected Kokomo, Indiana as it’s showcase city in the United States to demonstrate their amazing plant line and help make a difference for the neighbors of my hometown.
