Community Garden Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for the Town of Indian
I thought you might like to see a few photos of the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
for the Community Garden that I designed and built for the Town of Indian
Shores. This garden was the first of its kind in Florida that was designed
specifically for use of the EarthBox containerized growing system to grow
organic veggies. The EarthBox company videographer was there to make a
video which will be on their company website by the end of August. He flew
in from LA to make the video. Other TV and newspaper reporters were at the
event. I am writing an article now for the Quality Cities Magazine which is
a quarterly publication of the Florida League of Cities about this garden.
All cities in the United States have vacant lots that they have come into
ownership for various reasons over the years and these lots are just growing
up in weeds like this one was. More cities need to take these lots and turn
them into Community Gardens for use by the neighborhood to grow organic
foods and also be neighborly while meeting people with common interest. One
of the purposes of this garden was to also beautify the neighborhood with
the fence and landscape that surrounds the EarthBox growing area. Everyone
in the neighborhood has expressed how much they appreciate the beauty that
has been added to their community by building this garden. The restaurant
that catered the event will be using this garden to grow herbs for their
restaurant. Hope you enjoy the pictures.
