Community Garden Almost a Year Old.

It is almost a year since my local community garden was opened and already it seems like a home away from home.

Fruit trees grow in the back corner of the garden.


Here is the view from the back path.


My patch, always something for dinner.


The raised beds for the disabled are well used.


Love the Echinacea Flowers in this plot. There are always surprises at the garden.

I'm so glad you linked to metamorphosis Monday. I am really enjoying your blog and love you house. What is the average summer temperature where you are? Also, in this post, how were the raised beds made? Are they troughs or corrugated tin that is somehow bolted together?

The raised beds were supplied ready made to the garden so not really sure of details of structure.

Average daily temperature here year wide would be low to high 20's centigrade.

What a pretty Community Garden. I love the material they used for the raised beds, very clever. :)

Lovely garden! The community garden near us is not as well organized or maintained. And the raised beds is a brilliant idea.

Thanks for sharing!

Welcome to Blotanical and greetings from Illinois. You don't mention where you are, but your community garden looks enviably lush.

Community gardens are such a great thing! This one is lovely! I have a few tomato, pepper, and herb plants of my own this year...it's all about home made salsa! Thanks for sharing on Modern Craftswoman Monday! Rory

Community gardens are such a wonderful concept! I love the raised beds for the disabled!

Wonderfully beautiful community garden- ours here are just tilled earth with plots right next to each other. No permanent beds, paths, or fruit trees.

I hope you will continue to share what you're growing with us at the Tuesday Garden Party!
