One of the benefits of summer is anticipating the harvest season. This is especially true at Sibley Plaza and Garfield Terrace where residents have community gardens to keep them busy through the summer months.

The residents at Sibley Plaza celebrated their one-year anniversary for their community garden, while the residents at Garfield Terrace officially started theirs. The gardens have been a great way to bring their respective communities together.

DCHA Executive Director Adrianne Todman joined Sibley Plaza Resident Council President Anne Clark along with residents and representatives from A Wider Circle for their first-year anniversary.

The celebration at Garfield Terrace was the first event there, and for some residents it was their first time visiting the garden. They got off to an early start and have already planted watermelons, cantaloupes, tomatoes, squash, bell peppers, onions, and a variety of herbs such as: rosemary, thyme, basil, chives, parsley, and sage.

The goal of the gardens is to improve the quality of life for the residents, provide a catalyst for neighborhood and community development, stimulate social interaction, beautify the neighborhood, produce nutritious food, and to create opportunity for recreation, exercise, therapy, and education.
