Troy Gardens aerial 2008

Of course, any day is a good day to visit Troy Gardens, especially in summer. Whether you have a plot in the community gardens, like to take a walk in the natural areas, or are curious to see a five-acre organic urban farm, Troy Gardens is open to the public from sunrise to sunset. This year Community GroundWorks is scheduling lots of activities on Thursday evenings, starting with Troy Community Farm Stand.
