    Organic kitchen gardens, native plant gardens, container gardens, they are all here.  This is a chance to chat with neighbors, see what plants do well in Lower Falls, ask questions or just look.  

    Please contact Ron Parkinson if you are still interested in opening your garden, want to know more about what is involved or have a suggestion.

    More info to come.
