The Rev. Don Thomas, left, and Donnie Smail, right, have created and maintained the Brownstown Community Garden on property owned by Betty Burnheimer, center.

Betty Burnheimer has lived in her modest, little home for more than 50 years. The house sits on a corner lot that, apparently, is composed of very fertile soil that has supported bountiful harvests of vegetables since Mrs. Burnheimer put out her first garden more than half a century ago.
