Communnity gardens are places of beauty and productivity, bridging generational gaps and contributing to community diversity, benefiting the environment while improving the health of participants and rooting the members of a location to their place on the earth. Through pragmatic thinking of urban residents, community gardens enrich the social atmosphere of a neighborhood. This is social design in action – motivating citizens and yielding tangible results beyond expectations. I am proud to begin my Spring Fever by joining the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet and Celeste's Dream in the Summer 2008 community garden.
