Each Thursday evening last summer, a group of neighbors came together under the blue bottle tree at Troy Community Gardens to learn how to garden, have fun at a mini-workshop, and find a place in the rich web of connections that makes up a community garden. Some of the participants had disabilities, some did not. It was clear, however, that each person had a gift to share—expressed through sharing chores, story-telling, dancing, singing, drumming, bird watching, flower arranging, a garden parade and so much more. They all had a blast!
