An east village audio post. Click to play above.
This was a New York moment for me. I happened upon a community garden in the East Village, walked in, and started chatting with some of the members who aren’t exactly what you think of when you think of gardeners. I think it is worth 7 minutes.
To set the stage a little bit, there are about 5 guys and myself mainly discussing one of the members’ pet lizard while adding in some commentary on some of the more successful animated television series over the past 25 years. They were drinking PBR on a nice summer evening.
The garden itself is beautiful and has an incredible range of edible food, fresh herbs and spices. There is about a 20 year waiting list for a plot.
