Spring is in the air!

Hello neighbors,

Is anyone interested in starting a neighborhood garden in South Shore? Do you know of an empty lot for which we could get permission to use to install some raised beds and work together to grow some vegetables?
I have the knowledge and willpower to help but I can't do it by myself.
Who's interested???
