Inniswood is Growing! You Can Help!

Plans for construction are underway for the new Inniswood Greenhouse Multipurpose Center at the Inniswood Metro Gardens. Dottie BeVier, a long-time volunteer at Inniswood left a generous legacy to the Gardens, with the request that a mixed use facility be built within two years. Franklin County Metro Parks will cover the cost of the greenhouse, while Dottie’s contribution and additional donations will be used for the building itself.

Fundraising for this project is being led by the Inniswood Garden Society, along with Honorary Chairperson, former First Lady of Ohio, Hope Taft. Taft has worked with Inniswood for the past 12 years to create a formal network of Ohio’s botanical gardens, and is particularly passionate about this project due to the benefits it will provide the community.

The Greenhouse multipurpose center will provide much needed work space for staff and volunteers, meeting space for garden clubs and plant societies, along with rooms for several public education programs.

Westerville Named 2nd Happiest City in Ohio

Citing median household income, average commute times and the low odds of becoming a victim of a violent crime,, named Westerville number two on its list of Happiest Cities in Ohio.

In its explanation, said, "We limited our focus to those Ohio cities with a population of 20,000 or higher. We ranked the remaining cities based on how they scored across seven specific categories using data from the U.S. Census Bureau and FBI Uniform Crime Reports. The 10 cities that made our final list are the ones that got the best ratings overall in terms of these criteria: Restaurants, Crime rate, Commute, Departure time, Income, Divorce rate and Housing."

"Sharing a delicious meal with family members or friends is a great way to boost your mood, so we looked at the number of restaurants per capita for each city to narrow down those cities with the widest variety of choices." To see the complete explanation, Click Here!
