San Diego, CA: City Hall Runaround Leaves Community Gardens High and Dry

Posted by Content Coordinator on Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013

At a small community garden on the corner of Ridgeview Drive and Fairmont Avenue in City Heights, there are a few plots filled with straggling end-of-summer vegetables. There are tomatoes, pole beans and squash, but the lot is noticeably bare. Out of the 19 garden beds, only six have anything growing in them.

That’s because gardeners at the Ridgeview Community Garden don’t have access to water on their land.

Instead of using a hose to water their beds, they’ve been hauling water from their homes in gallon jugs and old laundry detergent containers. Garden organizer Jeanette Neeley said it’s a heavy burden — literally — for many of the senior gardeners. –Speak City Heights on YouTube.
