We were out for a walk on Wednesday and ran across a couple of nice gardens in the neighbourhood. At one of the local schools, an old sandpit was turned into a garden. An interesting mix of veggies and flowers (and weeds!) here. I hope this garden gets more attention than the flower garden they planted about five years ago.
One of my neighbours turned half of his front lawn under. Great southern exposure and some stuff has really come up.
An exciting development is a plan (sponsored by the city) to plant an urban food forest in the river valley. Basically pin cherries, saskatoons and whatnot on a grassy hill with a southern exposure in a ravine near us.
Assuming we're in town, Jess and I plan to go and help on July 19.
