New Grounds

Early in 2007 our group began discussing starting a new garden. The success we'd enjoyed with our round planter encouraged us to look into an LRA Lot on Minnesota. After reviewing the obstacles that this lot presented we decided it was definitely a workable location.

We obtained a 5 year lease for $5 and started planning. This lot was very overgrown and we think there was probably a house on it at one time. It had years of trash and weeds built up, making it a little daunting in the beginning.
We had already worked with Operation Brightside for our other garden and started attending classes for a larger grant.
At National Night Out we had an ice cream social at the site in an effort to gain support and interest from the neighboring residents. We even had the Mayor attend and show his support.
