A new garden project adjacent to the Enoch Davis Center, 1111 18th Ave. S. is under consideration by the city and we're asking for your input.
Several proposals are consideration, including community gardens featuring individual plots for resident gardens to market-style gardens managed by nonprofit organizations offering fresh, affordable produce for sale on site. An online survey and paper surveys are available at selected recreation centers. Completed surveys are due Sept. 5.
