Gardopia, a nonprofit that builds community gardens to educate the population on health and wellness through gardening, celebrated its one-year anniversary on Saturday.
The sun did not shine on Solar Fest on Saturday, but an overcast sky and occasional drop of rain did not deter crowds from stopping by Roosevelt Park for the annual event that mixes fun with solar-powered education.
Welcome rainfall Sunday and Monday offered tangible proof that 50 people who labored hard in the Pittman-Sullivan Community Garden Saturday accomplished their task.
A free, two-day event this weekend in the Eastside will give people who grow their own fruits and vegetables a chance to practice techniques that could make their gardens more productive and sustainable.
Two things I enjoy, but don’t do enough of – and should: 1) riding my bike downtown and 2) gardening.
A dry and barren plot downtown has been transformed into a lush and inviting community space.
