A community garden on a tennis court! I love it! This garden was inspired in part by another community garden halfway across the world, in the UK, where another group had built a garden right on top of an old tennis court. (This is the rad thing about the internet!) You can see an homage to their inspiration in their garden sign, which includes photos from the UK gardens.
This is the first neighborhood group that I know of in Salt Lake City to get permission from the City to build a community garden on public land. (The tennis courts had been derelict for years.) It's an exciting development for us!
This is the garden's first growing season, in July. I'm looking forward to seeing how the garden looks by the end of the season. Will the crops have enough root space to grow full size? Will there be enough water?
Another interesting thing about this garden is that they opted not to use drip lines or sprinklers. Basically, the coordinators thought it would be too much maintenance. So everything is hand watered by each gardener.
