Robert Gerber and Bruce Dwyer, volunteers at Streetscape Street Ministry, walked between two rows of raised garden beds overflowing with collards, mustard greens, broccoli gone to seed, purple globe-top turnips and the remains of last year’s tomatoes, reaching down to pull up the occasional weed that had snuck in and rooted among the edible bounty.

These community and kitchen gardens are a great idea. My sister in Dallas is a master gardener and they've established a community gardening area on some unused school land. Everyone has their little raised bed and you can seen families and neighbors out tending them all through the spring, summer and fall.
