Before: Troop 70769 will begin developing this community garden at Rosehill, in Bay Village, Ohio. The girls have been asked to plant a Native plants garden which will attract bees and butterflies. Landscaping will begin in spring at the Osborn Learning Center and around the sign in front of Cahoon House.
Osborne House at Rosehill becomes the Herb Guild Youth Project of the year. Members of the Herb Guild will work with one of the area Girl Scout troops to develop the gardens around the Osborne House Learning Center in Bay Village. Each Girl Scout will research a specific Native Plant to incorporate in the garden design.
Additional plantings will be designed to enhance the sign for Rose Hill in front of the Cahoon House & Museum.
The herb garden that the Herb Guild has developed and maintained for over 38 years is adjacent to Cahoon House by the original stone Smokehouse seen in the distance by the Smokehouse pictured below.

Our Community Garden Project
The Herb Garden by Cahoon house at Rosehill in Bay Village has been the longest supported garden effort by the Herb Guild since it’s beginning in 1981. Volunteer teams tend to the garden monthly, weeding and watering as needed. The Herb Garden at Stearns Homestead in Parma was also developed by the Herb Guild. The Westlake Community Garden Project is the newest garden supported by the Herb Guild. Pictured above is the Smokehouse by the historical homestead, Cahoon House in Bay Village.
Opening Day in May, 2017
