Community Garden

(Toledo, OH) While visiting Glenwood Lutheran Church the other night for a concert, I passed one of Toledo's burgeoning community gardens. This particular garden is located at Monroe Street and Glenwood, and it features the efforts of many local volunteers.

The Toledo GROWS website noted that this garden is a collaboration between Glenwood Lutheran, Firm Foundations, and the Boys & Girls Club of Toledo. I enjoyed wandering around and examining the various flowers, fruits, and vegetables the volunteers produced. This garden will also be expanding soon, as a dilapidated vacant home adjacent to the property is slated for demolition.

What once was a corner better known for stainless steel drums, abandoned cars, and rubbish is now green enclave in the heart of the city. Excellent land use, that.
