Sisters Samantha and Molly stopped to chat and look at the rain garden today. They knew what a rain garden was and what it did and said when they were kids they picked up litter with other neighbors.
“We lived on the corner of Indian Springs and Overbrook!” They lived with their Dad, Jack Wilson, at 190 Overbrook years ago.
Samantha now has an organic farm in southeastern Ohio and Molly owns Coyote Trails School of Nature in Bend, Oregon. They talked about the wonder of the Adena Brook neighborhood–the ravine, brook, and the families who live here like Carina and Mark Carter. Molly shared a story about being in Chicago on a travel layover when she met a man who also had lived in Ohio. They chatted as they waited for their flight. When they discovered they had both lived in Clintonville he exclaimed how much he loved the neighborhood and told her a story of a wonderful man who had planted a tree in a friend’s yard when she was struggling with cancer. That man was her Dad! Molly and Samantha said the tree was still there.
