Charlie’s wife, Lisa Koory, who meticulously tends to Little Blooming Garden - a beautiful flower garden on site at the restaurant - generously donated jars, flowers and her time so youth group members could make little floral arrangements with cards and special sentiments for various members, teachers and businesses in the Merchantville community. Love in Motion was thankful for the opportunity to spread some love and highly recommends enjoying some crepes while taking in the natural beauty of Lisa's gardens!
