A Community Gathering Place

An important element to the small town feel of Leland, The Village Green provides a lovely oasis at the end of the shopping district. Here, visitors and residents read their mail, wander through the beautiful perennial gardens, or simply take a moment to relax in this picturesque little village.

A cobblestone walkway leads to a large maple in the center of this locally funded community open space. Citizens united to convert a 200×200-foot commercial property on Main Street into a space in the middle of town for quiet recreation, memorial tree plantings, and live outdoor music. The magnificent Adelia Ball Morris Memorial Garden was created by the volunteer Village Green Gardeners (a.k.a. Leland Dirt Club).

Each Memorial Day weekend, the Wildflower Rescue Team holds a perennial plant sale on the Village Green. Many of the plants that they have rescued are sold, as well as other perennials. All proceeds support the work of the Wildflower Rescue Team and the maintenance of the Village Green gardens.
