A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of visiting the Alabama Gardens, a community garden right here in Third Ward.
I don’t know if pictures do the energy of this place justice. It’s truly the product of teamwork, consistency and love for community.
Not only do the gardeners like Mr. Terry donate some of their harvests to local organizations and individuals, they help maintain each other’s plots when someone is sick or unavailable.
Even though community gardens are popular right now, they don’t always flourish because the teamwork and consistency aren’t always there.
It’s inspiring to see how much effort everyone puts in at the Alabama Gardens and that it’s paying off.
The visit made an impression on me and even though it was weeks ago, I thought I’d share.
