As their project for 2018, the Allen-Fairview Chamber of Commerce Leadership Class elected to make a new garden at the central entrance circle of the Allen Historic Village. After initial plant selection meetings, the basic garden design was developed and workdays were held. Volunteers from Collin County Master Gardeners, Allen Garden Club, Allen Heritage Guild, and members of Allen JROTC framed the planting beds and set the foundation for a bench. The garden features a wide variety of native and adapted plants of varying heights and colors that will attract butterflies, bees, and birds.
