WELCOME TO KIM’S GARDEN - A Project of Friends of Kim Brenegar

WELCOME TO KIM’S GARDEN - A Project of Friends of Kim Brenegar

Kim Brenegar, a Capitol Hill resident and owner of the Washington, D.C. landscaping business “The Ornamental Garden,” died in a car accident in 2009 at the age of 49. The Friends of Kim Brenegar formed in 2010 to create a living legacy in honor of Kim’s love of community and the environment. We chose the renovation of a small public park just steps from Kim’s home, where for many years she had volunteered her talents and plant materials to maintain the garden.

Please check back here for updates and photos of our progress, become a Follower via Google Friend Connect or contact us to learn more about how you can help with the garden restoration. We look forward to hearing from you!

A Mother's Love

Julian Strodel (Kim's son) and Jeanne Frey (Kim's mom)

As the New Year begins, here is Kim. An ever present spirit, a denizen of Capitol Hill, an eternal presence in her chosen niche, we celebrate her life. The sandwich generations of her Mom and her son, Julian, smile out at you. The work of her sister Julie, her fiancĂ© Joe, and countless friends, relatives and supporters have brought Kim’s Garden to its current state of fruition. Look for more because this is a continuing product of love. To all of you, let her mother express sincere gratitude to so many who have made this project possible.
