Farmer John has been selling produce, baked and canned goods at the corner of Powelton and Lancaster Avenues for almost eight years. He remembers a time when stands stretched all the way to the end of the block, but now it’s usually just him.
Today he had company. The Sloan Street Community Garden had a table from 10 to 2 today. We collected signatures for our “save the garden” petition (you can sign the online version), sold reusable Chico bags, took donations and distributed fresh rosemary from the garden.
Thanks to everyone who stopped by to chat, share news from around the neighborhood, and support the garden!
