These photos were taken of the Troost Village Community Garden.
Things have been going well. We continue to organically organize, which means problems are sometimes slow at being solved. But they seem to get resolved eventually. We had a cookout in the garden last month in June and a face to face meeting for the first time in months. It was good to connect with everyone and feel more cohesive. At the last meeting someone had a cute idea of creating a manual water pump using a stationary bicycle to generate power. Too bad we don’t know how to make that happen….yet!
We are fortunate to have enough people supporting the garden that it gets watered and taken care of daily. My day for watering and maintenance is Wednesday mornings.
All these photos were stolen from artist Eric Klem. He has a tumblr you can follow at urbangardenskc!
