It was an honor to visit the community garden at Brittingham Park and to meet with Alder Sue Ellingson, some of the gardeners and community organizers who worked hard to make this garden a reality.
I was given a tour, and learned a lot about the wonderful varieties of vegetable and flowers.
I am so pleased that in its first year, although everyone is learning along the way, the garden seems to be a great success.
If you have a chance to stop by Brittingham Park, take a look at the great work that is being done.
These gardeners are not only growing food they're fostering community.
Enjoy the rest of the summer!
