The “Hami Garden” is a three minute drive from my house. Nothing could prepare me – – not even Elisa’s recent photos – – for the pleasant surprises I would find on my first visit. First of all, the garden is easy to find and there was plenty of street parking. (from Robertson, go West on Cattaraugus, turn left on Canfield and look for parking immediately. The entrance gate is on the left at the intersection of Kramerwood.)
The garden is now filled with an abundance of vegetables including lettuce, cabbage, beets and peas. I met up with Paula Waxman who is one of the garden’s organizers and from the SORO Green Team. Paula was busy instructing young volunteers on plant maintenance, but she was kind enough to grant me an interview (9:37 min)
I hope you enjoy it and will visit the garden soon.
