On Saturday, March 22, 2014, neighbors met at the Westview Community Garden on South Gordon Street to weed some garden beds, but more excitingly to put together a chicken coop acquired thanks to a donation by Random Acts. Children and adults worked together to put everything together. Next step – chickens!
Overall the community garden is looking at a promising year with three households starting seeds for the garden, the nearly completed garden shed that will double for a rain catchment purposes, and surrounding businesses eager to use spare vegetables grown in the garden. Volunteers are always welcome to help keep up the garden; community members meet up nearly every Saturday morning to work on the garden.
