Progress at Bruce-Monroe Park — Community Gardens & Water

New garden community garden beds at Bruce Monroe Park.

While most of the Lower Georgia Avenue communities were focused on the Caribbean Festival and Parade last weekend, some were otherwise occupied with construction of the new community garden at Bruce-Monroe Park. While organizers had hoped to finish the project in two morning blitzes on Saturday (6/25) and Sunday (6/26), it looks like they didn’t quite get there. None-the-less, the project appears to be off to a great start.

According to an email sent out by Bruce-Monroe Community Garden organizer Steve Seuser:

Community gardening is one of the hottest past times sweeping the country and today you have the chance to sign up to be part of it right in your own back yard! By growing you own food you’ll be:

  • getting back to nature,
  • saving money on grocery bills,
  • eating locally,
  • Improving your health,
  • helping the environment,
  • and meeting friends and neighbors!

Contrary to popular belief, summer and fall crops can be planted in throughout the summer, and harvested as early as July and as late as October!

So, whether you have little to no space to garden, or want to expand your existing gardening opportunities come and join the Bruce-Monroe Community Garden TODAY!!!

Copper pipe being laid at Bruce-Monroe Park ... hopefully to bring much-needed water to the site

Also while looking over the garden beds I noticed that work is being done on the Irving Street side of the property. Judging by the copper pipe this must be in support of bringing water to the site.

Water is among the outstanding issues that the City yet has to provide to the park and its nice to see that there is movement on that front as well.
