Time To Sow
The Milagro Allegro Community Garden is NOW accepting new gardener applications until early February for the 2011-2013 Term that begins this March.
Anyone with an interest in organic gardening in a communal setting is encouraged to apply. Lucky gardeners are chosen by lottery with preference given to those that live closest to the garden located behind the Highland Theater at 115 South Avenue 56. (Closer potential gardeners get extra tickets in the plot drawing, kind of like being scored on the Huizar Scale.) If you are lucky enough to get one out of the 29 6′X12′ plots, there is an annual fee of $60 that includes daily access to the garden, its tools, and unlimited water to grow what you wish. (Surprisingly, no one has yet grown anything the DEA frowns upon or abused the unlimited water to grow water-hungry crops like cotton or rice!)
Please see the Milagro Allegro “Garden With Us” page to download an application and get more information on the wonderful world of community gardening in Highland Park. Good Luck!
