Three Oaks, Michigan Community Gardens
Ok, these first couple shots have nothing to do with the garden - jus a view from inside the garden that I thought was kind of cool. :)
Ok, now to the garden. I believe it said on a sign there that it started in 2011. There are 8 X 24 raised plots that can be rented for the season for a nominal fee (I want to say it was $25, but I'm not positive.) People had everything from flowers to berries to potatoes planted there. A lot of it is for personal use, but some it also donated to a local food kitchen.
There was a mother and daughter there seated beside a plot picking strawberries. They said that they'd never been sprayed and were completely organic and they offered us a taste. WOW! And they were beautiful!
I would love to see something like this in my community! I think it's awesome!
