Community garden dedicated to Todd family, six years after deaths
PRINCESS ANNE, Md. – Community members gathered in Princess Anne on Tuesday night, honoring the lives of the Todd family, a family of eight who lost their lives six years ago from carbon monoxide poisoning.
On the lot where the family’s home used to stand, community members and leaders dedicated and broke ground on a community garden that will have herbs, and even an educational center with books for children in the community.
McCoy Curtis, who worked for years on getting this done, says it’s all about making sure the family is never forgotten.
“Turning something beautiful from an ugly situation, and that’s the while point of this, is to honor the memory of the Todd family, and turning the space into something beautiful,” he said.
Curtis says the tools for the garden are all set and it will be functional within weeks. But he says that’ll happen in phases.
