Ann Phillips wins honor for Ronald McDonald House 'secret garden'

March 11, 2010

Wauwatosa resident Ann Phillips has been chosen as the International Society of Arboriculture Gold Leaf Award recipient for her work in the garden of the local Ronald McDonald House.

She has led a group of fellow Master Gardeners in creating and maintaining "the secret garden," a place of comfort and solitude for families dealing with a seriously ill child. Plantings, a gazebo, wishing pond and pathways are some of the amenities of the private, walled garden.

She will receive the award April 12 at the Ronald McDonald House on Watertown Plank Road.
