It’s August. It’s hot. The veggie crops are growing. W Rockland Street residents planted a huge variety of flowers, shrubs, veggies, herbs and fruit during the first ever Grow This Block! project in May and now everyone is tasting the rewards.
We’ll be adding photos of the growing gardens and mini-farms in this gallery on Flickr as the season continues: Growing W Rockland Street: Grow This Block! Results
Here, some of the best kid gardeners – Marianna, Yasmine and Zhontay – pose with crops from the block.
