The garden: before
Quick post before I go to our first garden meeting - my apartment building is going to turn some unused common space into a shared garden. I've volunteered/fallen into the role of organizer. I'm good at organizing, but I know next to nothing about gardening, so this should be an interesting endeavor. I feel good about it, though: in the few days since this started happening, I've had more contact with some of the residents in my building since I moved in three years ago.
There's already a little bit of garden going - one person started it, and when he moved out, another took over and expanded a bit. But now we're probably going to remove some of the plants filling in the former pool, and get some raised beds built on it instead. This could be great!
