Our Community Garden

As sad owners of exactly no yard, we were thrilled, THRILLED to score a plot in our local community garden.
Just look at those plots begging to be filled with delicious vegetables!

Besides being a space where we can try out gardening for the very first time, it is also a peaceful escape from everyday life. It even SMELLS calm and free out here!
These buildings have stood since the 1800's, and our community garden has regular work day events where everyone gets a hand in restoring and preserving our slice of land and its structures for the next generation.
To me, this place is opportunity. It's an opportunity to grow something all on
our own, to be a part of the cycles of life. It's the first steps toward self sufficiency, bits and pieces of our homestead. It's a beginning.
