Description:
Our garden contains nine raised beds. There are five neighbors involved with the garden. All plots are shared among the five neighbors. The garden has a Facebook page and communication regarding garden tasks and food distribution occurs there. Every Wednesday a group of youth involved in a garden project through the Department of Human Services visit the garden to perform small tasks including weeding and watering and learn more about gardening. The youth have three raised beds behind the DHS office and food from those beds is given to them to share with their families who helped plant those beds.
