In The Garden Spirit Tree Benefits Captiva Historical Society

by R.S. Walsh

In The Garden – Sanibel’s Retail Garden Center and Outdoor Showroom – has planted a spirit tree that will benefit island non-profits. The Olive tree was chosen because it represents love and charity. The Captiva Island Historical Society is the March recipient.

Established in 2011, the Captiva Island Historical Society (CIHS) is committed to the gathering, preserving, interpreting and sharing of Captiva Island history, while providing education about the remarkable people and events that have shaped its past.

“We are inviting everyone to stop by and add their good thoughts, well-wishes and blessings to our spirit tree,” said Lisa Walsh, owner of In The Garden and R.S. Walsh Landscaping. “Canvas tags are available in our gift shop for $2.00 and the entire amount will be donated to different local charity each month.”
