Can you find the stealth township service in this photograph? In the distance are the basketball and tennis courts of Community Park, but I had heard rumors of community gardens somewhere along John Street, for heavily shaded residents to grow vegetables. This desolate corner with parking lots and weedy lawns didn't look promising,
but a peek over the fence reveals another world.
Looks like a good year for local food production.
A parallel scene at the Smoyer Park garden plots can be found in a post at princetonprimer.org.
