Did you know that the West End neighborhood has almost 10 community gardens? Community gardens are great ways to provide access to fresh foods, increase social capital, and reduce crime. Our Mr. Johnny Whiting Community Garden is located on Chamberlain Ave., directly adjacent to the St. Vincent Greenway. Last summer, community gardeners planted tomatoes, green beans, cucumbers, sunflowers and even watermelons. If you are interested in learning something new, getting to know your neighbors, or just simply getting some physical activity, please consider becoming a Mr. Whiting community gardener. No experience or long-term commitment required! If you would like more information, please contact Eliza Murray at 314.361.9406. We look forward to hearing from you!
