There is a bountiful lush green community garden tucked between buildings containing offices and bedrooms, where Pearson staff work and Pearson residents live. It is wheelchair accessible, with a wide cement patio and heavy equestrian mats between the beds. Residents have their own plot, and from March to October they plan and grow various veggies, fruit and flowers. Gardeners meet weekly, and volunteers help facilitate gardeners as needed. Gardeners choose between ground beds and raised table top beds, like the one below.
Mario’s table top garden has the most amazing snap peas this year. He’s donated a couple pounds of snap peas to the community kitchen!
Snap Peas of Mario!
