The artist’s Serene Urban Garden – decorated with metal sculpture made from scrap metal

To the urban mystic, community gardens represent hope and faith, in each other, and in where we plant ourselves (cities sometimes), and of course in Nature herself, that she will partner with us to create abundant nourishment and beauty. Apropos of that, I’m pleased to write that a group of good peeps in Vallejo, CA, are working hard to create a community garden at an empty lot on the corner of Ohio and Marin Streets. This would place this gem of a community building effort very much ‘on the map’ of Vallejo’s Art District on Marin Street.
