Our community garden started in 2001 as an urban farm/community garden/outdoor learning area. In 2004, we received a grant to re-design the garden (see plan below). We had an official garden dedication celebration and designated the garden as an international peace site. Over the years the garden has been farmed by local chefs; it's been a flower and vegetable CSA with Farm in the City; it's been a space for arts and cultural events by high school students and local artists; it's been individual community plots; it's been a teaching garden; and, it was featured on the American Community Gardening Association's tour (www.communitygarden.org).
