Tenants of Lennoxville’s Residences Oxford were upset at the management’s decision to remove tenant Carolyn Bentzen’s garden from Residences Oxford property. The garden has been planted in the same space every year—a tradition started by late tenant Eddie MacEachern.
“Ever since I’ve been here, a neighbour has always gone out and planted (the garden) and put flowers in,” said Bentzen. She has lived at Residences Oxford since 2012, adding that the community has always appreciated MacEachern’s work. After his passing in 2019, the garden stayed empty, but was started again this year due to the wishes of his widow, who still resides at Residences Oxford.
