On a walk a friend took me into an urban community garden.
I always imagined these spaces as utilitarian plots to grow food.
Instead, I found a lush space where many, if not most, people were cultivating all different kinds of flowers. The garden was a peaceful oasis nestled between city streets.
As for the vegetables, kale and tomatoes were popular. Sunflowers were also well represented – I’m not sure if these were a food item or just a stately and beautiful plant.
