Community garden

Community gardens are sprouting up all over Akron, thanks in large part to groups like University Park Alliance and NEOhaus. We all benefit from fresh food and closer communities.

A few weeks ago, we went to photograph the first night of a community garden, and were invited to take a plot and plant our own garden. Hooray! We jumped right in and planted squash, cucumbers, cauliflower, tomatoes, and more. Others have beans, okra, radishes, and herbs.

It’s fun to work together, but it’s also a lot of work. Fortunately, it rained the first week, so we didn’t have to worry much about watering our garden, but we’ve seen straight sunshine ever since. That means families have to water the community garden twice a day. We also had to work out where to store the hoses and tools, and how to keep our garden free from pests, both human and insect.

I can’t wait to share the results of our garden with you. What are you growing this year?
