  • Gardens, gardeners sprouting

    At the Bill Duncan Park neighborhood garden, Penny Adamson (left) and Emily Seibel prepared their garden bed, which last year produced five kinds of tomatoes, prolific green beans and other vegetables and flowers. Villagers can still sign up for a plot at one of four neighborhood gardens. (Photo by Megan Bachman)

    What began as a modest effort to start a community garden has mushroomed to four neighborhood gardens scattered around town — with more soon to sprout.

  • The chips are down

    Mills Lawn School parents, kids, teachers and staff, including Principal Matt Housh, grabbed shovels last Saturday to spread a new layer of mulch on the playground, providing a soft landing for any students who might take a tumble. Shown above are, from left, parent Chris Wyatt with, on the hill from left, Tavien Clay with a shovel; Reese Spurgeon, sliding down; Bob and Morris Wyatt; and Max Banaszak-Moore.

  • Gardens yield more than green

    Some members of the loosely-networked community gardening group are shown in the FCC garden. Pictured from left to right are: standing, back row: Meranda Pelzl, Corinne Pelzl, Daniel L. Pelzl, Rob Content and Doug ‘Thor’ Bailey. Middle row, seated: Faith Morgan, Eric Johnson, Jenny Haack, Max Banaszak-Moore, Bob Moore. Front row: McKenna Banaszak-Moore and Christine O. Roberts, Sally Palmer and Paul Webb.

    Some say starting a garden is an act of faith, a passive act done best when the moon is right. Others, like a new local community gardening group, plan for a good crop by building beds of e-mail list serves and germinating ideas at community potlucks.

    This loosely networked bunch of area gardening enthusiasts and hopeful amateurs has scattered seeds of intention across the village and Miami Township that just might sprout up in the form of shared gardens, seed swaps and educational activities near you.
