Residents are invited to have their own plot in the community organic garden. It all began in early spring 2009, when we cleared away blackberry bushes, rocks, graffiti and garbage from a vacant lot. By late summer we had a beautiful fenced in garden with bark covered paths running between fertile garden beds. In the beds grew beans, broccoli, cabbage, celery, chives, corn, dill, cucumbers, eggplant, leeks, lettuce, nasturtiums, okra, red and yellow peppers, pumpkins, raspberry bushes, rhubarb, about 6 kinds of squash, thyme, tomatoes, sunflowers, and zucchini. Not bad for a first year. Since then, the garden continues to be expanded and improved upon each year.
