"A lot of people come who don't really have the sunlight in their own yards to grow their vegetables," said Susan Stansbury, the community's garden coordinator.
Located behind the Midtown shopping area since 1994, the community garden offers plots ranging from 40 square feet to 125 square feet, at 22 cents per square-foot.
The neighborhood oasis is sponsored by the environmental nonprofit organization, Acterra.
Plot holders are responsible for the maintenance of their own plots, as well as community clean-up days, which occur about every six months.
There is currently one family on the waiting list, and the average wait time can be a few months. Those interested in trying their hand at organic gardening should contact Susan Stansbury at firstname.lastname@example.org.
