Martha Stewart Living Visits the Garden
The folks at Martha Stewart Living decided to do an article on urban gardens for their March 2011 issue and picked our garden to feature! They set up camp on our block and spent 3 days shooting photos and video. The whole experience was a lot of fun for the neighborhood. The MSL people were very nice and fun to work with. We are all very excited to see the final article and online videos.

We used donated concrete pavers and reclaimed materials to create a path that was professionally built, but still keeps the spirit of the garden.

This morning at 10 AM, Terry Mushovic signed the papers at the Redevelopment Authority for the transfer of 939-941 South 3rd Street to the Neighborhood Gardens Association on behalf of the gardeners. Now the Bodine Street Garden is permanently preserved!
RDA Takes Over Garden
The garden property is officially in the hands of the Redevelopment Authority!! The RDA will have a lease agreement with the Neighborhood Gardens Association until they can transfer the property to the NGA in the Fall.
Grant Money for Improvements
The deadline to use our grant money is in June 2006. DiCicco’s office assured us the garden purchase is a done deal and it is safe to go ahead and use the money for improvements. So far we got a water line from the city and the very damaged sidewalk on 3rd Street fixed.
