Our community garden is built up of over 100 garden plots. Plots vary from 10' by 10' to 10' by 20', we even have raised garden beds to accommodate those with limited access and children. All of our plots are nicely laid out in a sort of grid and have easy accessible paths for garden members to walk down. The plots are all designed differently according to the garden members preference. Some garden members prefer more herbs while other prefer an even mix of veggies and flowers. Either way the garden plots are in full bloom and the common grounds are flourishing with flowers, trees, and shrubs. Most of the garden members can probably name most of the plants inside the gardens, but do you know your neighbors?
A community garden goes beyond the simple walk in, garden your plot, and then go home. We are a network of individuals from different backgrounds and with different beliefs coming together to grow the healthiest produce we can eat. The greatest thing about our current garden members is the love for sharing information. We talk about gardening techniques, cooking techniques, recipes, diy projects, and much more. In the past few years we have been very fortunate enough to have a photographer amongst our members. Below you can see some of the Faces of Garden, thanks to Ray Davis.
