Located on a lot owned by local realtor Lassie MacDonald, the inaugural VeggieCommons-installed garden can be found on University Dr. Begun during the Spring of 2011, the garden was the collaboration of a small group of women gardeners, learning-by-doing. The garden has been affectionately named, “Friendship Garden.”
In its first season, the garden yield supplied veggies to a farm stand, the lot owner, numerous neighbors, and the lucky gardeners themselves!
