Seven years ago, the space across the street from Patricia and Robert Hart’s house in the 600 block of North Latrobe Avenue was a literal dump. Now, with help from the group Human Scale, they’ve turned it into an accessible community garden. Next year, they will turn half the pergola into a greenhouse, and the other half into a workshop where events and classes about gardening and healthy eating can be hosted.
Stop by most Saturdays this summer at gardens to pitch in. The next events will be held June 8 at the Veterans Peace Garden, 5413 W. Madison St., and PCC Austin Farm, 330 N. Lotus Ave. Refreshments will be served.
