They call it the "BiodiverCity"

A scant half dozen blocks from the bustle of Chinatown, we walked into a fragrant oasis, quiet except for the buzzing of a million bees and the chatter of chickadees and sparrows.

Strathcona Community Garden. Once a dump, now ... let me show you:



Environmental Youth Alliance map.




Apples, redding up.




Yellow squash.




Weeding the rows of onions.




A few plots on the southeast corner.


Tomorrow: history of the garden, current projects, more veggies, fruit and flowers, beehives, and a hidden Buddha.

If your comment is on a post older than a week, it will be held for moderation. Sorry about that, but spammers seem to love old posts!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
