smell the flowers

so yesterday i left work early to see what i could see. i went to the Laguardia Gardens where my good friend Sara Jones contributes her expert gardening skills....
about LaGuardia Community Garden

LaGuardia began in 1974 as a community vegetable garden on a lot just below Washington Square Park that was owned by The Jewish Cultural Center. When the land was sold in 1980 the community garden was forced to either dissolve or move. With the help of GreenThumb they found a new location just as the bulldozers were arriving. It was only one block away and they have been there now for more than 25 years.
