Beautiful Day at the Brighton Community Garden!

Sue Gardner Smith giving history and background on the garden
When I left for the tour at the Brighton Community Garden on Sunday it was pouring rain at our house. I was going simply to tell people that we'd be rescheduling the tour! Ten minutes later, when I got there, it was a beautiful sunny day!!! About twenty people turned up, many driving through the rain to get to this sunny spot. Sue Gardner Smith, one of the key organizers of the garden, gave a good history and overview of the garden, with lots of questions and lively discussion. We then all wandered the garden, looking at plots and talking with a number of members of the community garden. About 4:30, as we were finishing up, a heavy rain started. So grateful for the cooperative weather in making this tour a success. More information on the Brighton Community Garden can be found at www.brightonfarmersmarket.org/bcg/.
The entrance to the Brighton Community Garden, which contains 100 10x10 plots, each tended by community members who use organic methods. Demand is great for the plots and currently are only available for Brighton residents. Because of the demand, there's discussion of expanding the garden further.

Talking with one of the gardeners about what's growing!
