There’s nothing new about community gardening. But it still continues to provide an exciting for first time participants.
The Railyard Park in Santa Fe, New Mexico, is the result of over 10 years of planning and construction. The park opened in the fall of 2008 and continues to add new features.
This spring planners unveiled a new community garden.
Anyone from the community who was interested could apply for a 10 x 5 foot plot and pay a small fee to get everything they needed except the plants. The new gardeners range from a group of local teens to a father with his 3 year old son. One man, without any gardening experience, is using the opportunity to learn from a garden engineering advisor.
Community gardeners deserve esteem just for putting their time and energy into this great hobby and for sharing their knowledge with each other.
