New Community Garden on Manistique

Those traveling through the Jefferson Chalmers neighborhood may notice beautiful new community gardens taking root on various streets. The most recent addition is the Manistique Community Garden, located at 870/876 Manistique Street.  Gardeners and neighborhood residents Myrtle and Wayne built a natural garden border with branches and tree trunks to bring definition to their space. They are looking forward to receiving lumber for three raised beds from the Garden Resource Program and planting their cold crops and seeds.
