We have found a great spot for a downtown community guerrilla garden!
Michelle and I were driving around downtown and found the perfect spot for a guerrilla community garden. It is a large lot, lots of sun, and not in the 'open' open...it is shielded from strong winds. Clue: it is behind a space that was filled with drink and song, some even lived there, and it is missed by many.
We need help from fellow guerrilla gardeners...we will need to prepare the soil and we will need plants and seeds...and some sort of rain collection bins/system...it is exciting though...I will keep posted for a first meeting when we can visit the site - plan and then get started!!! Even if we just do a small patch this year - we can then build more next year.
Oh and Shawna pointed out that there is a large wood planter in the downtown IGA parking lot...we thought that would make a great herb garden.
