In its efforts to preserve more land from development and protect wildlife habitat, the Kiawah Conservancy recently announced that it has acquired its first property on Johns Island.
The three-acre parcel, at 4368 Betsy Kerrison Parkway, is where Rosebank Farms has been selling fresh produce for years. The farmstand’s owners, Sidi Limehouse and Louise Bennett, are planning to move their business by the end of the year to the entrance of the new Kiawah River community, at 3883 Betsy Kerrison Parkway, about two miles from their current location, according to Collie Farah, land preservation specialist for the Conservancy.
In a press release, Louise Bennett said, “Sidi and I are extremely happy to see this property preserved by the Kiawah Conservancy. We know that the Conservancy will ensure the property remains as it should, a true and natural part of Johns Island.”
The Kiawah Conservancy, like the Seabrook Island Green Space Conservancy, works to acquire open spaces to protect wildlife and preserve the natural beauty that makes the area so special and enhances the quality of life. Both conservancies depend on the support and generosity of Kiawah and Seabrook residents.
