Beach Flats Community Garden Thriving

The weather is warming and this years summer crops at the Beach Flats Community Garden are coming up. It's been over a year since the Garden was first threatened with closure by the overburdened and resource-strapped Community Center which oversees it. Since, members of the community have banded together not only that once, but again last December, to make sure the garden stays open, the second time in the face of city budget cuts. Despite the threats, gardeners continue to plant, tend and harvest.
