Many folks local to Huntsville, Alabama remember Garden Cove Produce. Long before there was a Fresh Market, EarthFare, Whole Foods, or Sprouts, there was the local health and produce store at the corner of Meridian and Pratt. Closed on Saturdays, it was always a refreshing visit to see a different variety of items from a typical supermarket. Sadly, they closed several years ago.
Garden Cove was also a well-decorated store, with several public artworks around the exterior.
I'm from Huntsville, Alabama where I work as a Software Engineer and part-time banjo instructor. My wife Miiko and I worship at Rivertree Downtown.
I've been playing various instruments since my teen years. I started mandolin and dulcimer at about age 17 and banjo at 20. I love just about all kinds of music. In terms of banjo styles, I play and teach Scruggs, melodic, clawhammer, and 2-finger styles.
I'm also very keen on theology, being a Trail Care Partner with the Land Trust of North Alabama, photography, urban planning, architecture, astronomy, ATM (amateur telescope making), birding, martial arts, and about 30 other distracting hobbies to a (mercifully) lesser extent.
Those are some great murals!
Yes, so sad that the store is closed and the murals are slowly deteriorating, though!
That is bummer. I am afraid that has become a somewhat common occurrence lately.
