Back in 2007 I saw an ad on our town’s local television channel for a community garden. A local boy (then 10) thought it would be a good idea to take a run down park and do this project. We participated in 2007, 2008, 2009. The park doesn’t have the best soil, I wouldn’t even rate it good. We don’t have tremendous success due to things like worms and grubs who like to eat our goodies, but it’s still fun. We live in a condo and don’t have any space to make a garden ourselves, so this was the perfect thing for us. It’s free too! We get a 10×10 or so plot of land and lots of local business donate supplies. Last year in 2010 there was a little bit of confusion and unfortunately we were unable to participate, so I was very excited when my husband let me know the lady who runs it called us and told us to get started!
Here are some pictures from our first year participating.
Andy and I pre-kids haha:
