Who was Edna?
The café name, “Edna’s Eatery” was inspired by Edna Johnson – housekeeper, friend, nanny, and gardener to the Gardens’ founders, the Porter family. Edna is credited with planting many of the citrus trees on the west end of the property, and she loved to tend a large herb garden. Mrs. Porter frequently noted in her Garden journal that Edna’s quest for harvesting lemons, figs and oranges would result in the most “scrumptious cookies and pies.” Her potting shed, located in the Herb Garden, is a constant reminder of her love for the home and gardens that she helped to create. Edna lived on the property until her death in 1973.
