Smith has worked to spread the word of gardening and has been working, in every way he can to help the community garden grow. At this point there are around 50 gardens with many more gardeners involved (whole families in some cases).
The children of a nearby elementary school have decided they want to learn to garden and they've put forth considerable effort (as have their parents) to get their garden ready. All six grades are involved, each with a section ready to plant. Some have built paths, others different shapes to add interest, as well as trellis for vines. Much to their delight, Smith gave them a couple of left over scare crows.
Sunday was very chilly and, to make it worse, quite breezy, but the sky, which started out a brilliant blue, filled with interesting cloud patterns. A storm, yet another, is on the horizon. Spring just hasn't taken hold.
