Alley Community Garden

Since today is Thursday, I first want to take you out back behind the Enhance Your Art studio to display the Alley Community Garden.  Taken from the link below:

What was once urban blight has now become "The Alley Garden" and Art project located in the Alley of the 2900 block of Cherry.  Our intention is to create a space for community gardening, public gatherings, education of healthy food practices and to beautify the landscape of the Longfellow Neighborhood.

The Longfellow Community Association is working towards establishing the Longfellow Farmer's Market and Teaching Garden.  The proposed site is located at 29th St and Gillham Rd.  Spearheaded by the Longfellow Community Association, this project has the support of local businesses and institutions as it moves forward with a test market during the summer months of 2012.

Farmer's Market is every Thursday evening from 4-9 pm


This neighborhood is making a revitalizing recovery.  This farmer's market is close to Hospital Hill, Hallmark, Crown Center, Penn Valley Park and could become a huge success with your support.
