This park is at the corner of Richmond and Mandell. Just a quick walk or bike ride from my apartment.
It is one of the locations for an Urban Harvest Garden. Who would think that herbs, vegetables, flowers and a prairie would be growing in the middle of a city, but the proof is in the pictures.
Volunteers tend to the garden. Let's applaud them and thank them with loud uproarious cheers. Hip, hip, hoorah!!!!!
|I'm kind of partial to prairies, growing up in Kansas, lots of prairies there.|
|I'm glad they were able to preserved some of the plants.|
|Squash, I presume.|
|Food reserved for the homeless.|
