Springdale Community Garden

In 2009, Springdale resident Reuben Blood was determined to start a community garden so people who lived in apartments could grow their own food. He was able to convince enough people that it was a good idea that the city provided some unused property for that purpose, and in 2010, the garden has its gardeners. It is still in use today, although it needs some work. Pictured from July 2010 are Reuben Blood, the founder; Pedro, a gardener from El Salvador; and Jean Griesing, a gardener who lived at Mill Creek.
