This weekend, eight neighborhood residents gathered at the East West Community Garden on Lafayette Avenue to tend to their new beds. All beds have now been claimed!
Grandma J, Dayatra and Bree represent three generations of gardeners who spent the day working on their plot together. August and his dad joined the community garden for a fun summer activity and to grow vegetables for their family.
