The community garden of 88, 880 and the Casitas on Grandview Way.


Greetings, Growers and friends! In this, our maiden post, we would like to thank everyone who made this project possible: the Casitas Board for entertaining and nurturing the idea, the Shared Services Board for approving it, Michael, Maggie and the other people in the background who set up everything we needed to get growing.

Let us also congratulate ourselves for being enthusiastic and willing to participate in or follow this wonderful experiment. Hopefully, at the end of the season, we will have gathered not only a handful of flowers and a bowl of fresh fruit and/or vegetables, but also baskets of experience, bushels of lessons learned and a bunch of new friends. One thing is for sure: we would have taken an important first step towards a greener and healthier community.

To start, we have included tips on growing the most common crops we saw in the garden this year
