The People's Market and Gardens in Glenwood Neighborhood
The People's Market and Gardens is located in the heart of the Glenwood neighborhood, just south of Lee Street and east of the Coliseum. Perhaps the garden IS the heart of Glenwood. On the day we stopped by, this neighbor was taking a break from web designing to come out and chat with locals while pruning, weeding, and watering.
Community gardens are an urban trend, bringing neighbors together and providing a local food source. The garden area in the photograph has so much potential. The large parking lot in front would be the perfect venue for a small farmer's market, community yard sales, you name it. Kudos to the residents of Glenwood for making such a commitment to bringing your neighborhood back to its original beauty. We're convinced that a good coffee shop would help significantly. In the meantime, we enjoyed our chat in the garden!
