Koenig House Community Therapy Garden

The Koenig House Community Therapy Garden is located behind the Koenig House which is at 829 East Fourth Street in Alton, Illinois. It is accessible from Oak Street.

The garden is developing daily throughout the 2016 summer. It features three raised beds filled with tomatoes. Sunflowers line the drive next to the garden. A recent discovery of grapes will surely be an interesting venture of this project. 

The therapy garden sits in the side yard of the Willhelm house, the property directly adjacent to the backyard of the Koenig House. 

The initial site overgrowth removal was done by the Youth Build group in the Fall 2015, with the same group building the three raised beds in Spring 2016. Signs that will be installed at the site recognizing contributors to the sites development will be completed and installed Fall 2016. 

The garden has a solar motion spotlight and a new bench for seating.
