Our New Plattsburgh Housing Authority (PHA) Community Garden is growing strong. Thank you to all of our volunteers and friends that have made it possible. I'll be posting a site overview with information on the garden soon, but for now enjoy this picture.

Growing in Plattsburgh at our Penfield Park Community Garden

This image is from May 18, 2013.

This image was taken on June 18. Note the minimal growth of our gardens in that time. We'll see significant growth as soon as we get a bit of heat!

Wow! What a difference 40 days makes. This picture from July 28th shows the garden near peak in size. Lots of green tomatoes and many, many items ready to pick.
