Audrey Hepburn, the world-famous actress and legend once said, “To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.”
Perhaps these words couldn’t be truer for former Metro West Housing Solutions’ (MWHS) resident Kathy Ross.
The 66-year-old said that finding her green thumb while participating in the community gardens at Lamar Station Crossing partly inspired her to pursue her long-time dream to purchase a home—and a garden—of her very own, for the first time in her life.
“Owning my own home has been on my bucket list. I tried a couple of times over the years and couldn’t make it happen,” she said.
This time, though, all the pieces fell into place for Ross. She just purchased and moved into a single-story bungalow in Pueblo, Colo., in a neighborhood brimming with historic and unique homes. Ross, who is a visual artist, said her new home has a large yard—a blank canvas waiting to teem with flowers, fruits and vegetables come spring and summer.
