Kori and Brian Kasper took an empty corner at Lake and Benton streets across from the Santori Library and made it a bit of paradise. The Kaspers, both from Wheaton, opened Branch Gardens, 77 S. Lake St., to the public on May 4, 2018.
“I have always loved taking something that just needs a little love and making it beautiful again.” -Kori
Originally from Wheaton, Kori fell in love with the historic charm of downtown Aurora and thought that there was so potential for businesses to help revive the area. So, after finding their space, throwing on a coat of paint and filling it with beautiful plants, Branch Gardens was born.
