Fall Fest Puts Shine on Community Garden

It’s easy to measure the growth and vibrancy of our neighborhood by looking at Foster Road itself (or Powell or 82nd)—it’s commercial corridor; places to shop; development and investment.

    These are great pictures! Thank you so much for capturing these moments and your succinct appraisal (I’ve been writing one for 62ndgarden for days and I can’t seem to cut it down). I think I’ll link yours 🙂
