Community gardening –
This was a totally new concept to me, until I visited the community garden plots in my community.The joys of sharing the green thumb magic are innumerable, especially if you love gardening & like playing in the dirt .
“These gardens and farms are places where people of all ages and of many cultures build new relationships and work together to improve their communities. Gardeners grow fresh fruits and vegetables as well as flowers to use for themselves, share with their neighbors, or sell at community markets. Community members use the gardens for parties, picnics, meetings, or just for having a good time. Community gardens are lively spaces where neighbors get together to share their traditions and stories.”
One can book a small plot & grow anything they want, water is provided, so are the tools, tips from the friendly gardening neighbors beside you, on the art of growing plants, a lot of laughter, shared manual work all this make the Summer a great experience outdoors & what’s more you get to go home with your goodie bag full of fresh veggies & fruits & some flowers too smile emoticon Sharing some lovely pictures of the neighborhood “green thumb” here…..
