Get your (community) garden on!

May brings the flowering bulbs and trees, greens, peas, rhubarb, butterflies and bees!  Come see, smell and hear the nature action in SE Como's community Gardens.  The year 2010 brings a new garden on the scene- Talmage Crossing Community Garden, which like the other neighborhood community gardens, needs TLC from volunteers like you.  Every week has a garden date & every site meets at least once a month. These community garden times are GREAT places to learn a new tip, get a division, or try out a new tool.   Gardening interest is a red hot trend nationwide, and lucky for SE Como residents, we have lots of garden opportunities right in the neighborhood.

For garden page links and information on how to get connected to a particular garden project, including the vegetable garden location, see this page.
