2013 Season of Gardening at the Old Soldiers’ Home About to Begin

With the warm weather, the community garden season is about to begin. In addition to both Wangari and the Bruce Monroe gardens, gardening at the Old Soldiers’ Home is about to begin.

A week ago, equipment was brought in to begin the process of preparing the AFRH garden plots near the intersection of Park Place and Rock Creek Church Road. They are scheduled to be done today so that gardening can begin.

Among the reasons I’m so excited by the start of gardening season are that it is a restful activity similar to going to the country (even though you’re still in the city) and that last year we had a significant amount of surplus produce that we donated to the Senior Wellness Center. I’m hoping this year is as successful.
