Community Garden Plots

Each gardener at the community garden has their own gardening style. This diversity is encouraged and all members enjoy experimenting and sharing their results.

Below are photos of a range of individual beds, showing a spectrum of planting styles. This gardener has planted groupings of different foods.



as has this wonderful broccoli grower.


Here plants are grown in a more linear style.


My own patch  is an eclectic style.  Love experimenting and using larger plants to protect my smaller seedlings. Also add protective companion plants to deter pests.

Thank you for the invite Green Earth. I would love to contribute! Beautiful blog, I love your focus on sustainability and "green". I also love the word "meme". Thanks for introducing me to that term. My cat in Taiwan was named MeMe, it means "little sister" in Mandarin. :)

How lovely, it is always interesting to see how other gardeners create their patch. I always find I get totally immersed in gardening and forget about time. I shall definitely be popping back to see 'how your garden grows'

Interesting to se how others plant their gardens. All the plants seem to be doing well no matter what the style. The colors and textures make it as interesting as any flower garden. Jean

The community garden plots are a great idea. And they all seem to be doing very well. Great psot and photos!

I am not sure I would have picked up on food groupings. Never really had a full-on vegetable garden, so this is neat. Companion plantings would have crossed my mind, but knowing me they would all be in neat little rows!

I like the idea of community gardening plots. These veggies look very well tended.

They are all wonderful. When I had a garden I tended to like planting companion plants in their own groups. Was always amazed how my tomatoes were ten times better when planted with basil and sooo nice when both were together in the resulting meal :)

These community gardeners sure know how to plant intensively and creatively! Thanks for sharing at the Tuesday Garden Party.
