Darla and Steve Welch with grandchildren, Ivy and Connor Simmons and son Steve - "My grandkids have grown up here. I grew up in a garden with my grandmother and I wanted them to have that too."
Barbara and Morrie Granger - "We like the garden because it has produced visual and edible treats and wonderful friendships."
Peter Grohmann and Vera Wilmot - "My office is there (across the street from the garden) and when it gets totally crazy I step out and take a ten minute break here--then I feel somewhat normal again."
Sally Coffey - "What I hear most people say, and the number one reason I like the garden is the sense of community, the opportunity to meet your neighbors. I like our special events, the potlucks, and the music. The music is part of the art of the garden. It's fun to see people in who wouldn't ordinarily come in contact with one another meet in the garden. They ask the questions and that breaks down the barriers."
Victor Reyes - "Me gusta mucho todo el tiempo. Me gusta bastante porque yo mirando las plantas y las canas. Es muy bonito aqui."
Tim Crays and Jan Munoz
Ann Christoph and Alfredo Careaga - "Alfredo likes my stopping by on my way home from work and bringing lettuce and arugula straight from the garden. 'It couldn't be any fresher than that,' he says. I like working together with neighbors I had never met before and creating something wonderful from almost nothing."
Myron Wacholder - "I love getting my hands in the dirt, but more than anything I love the cultivation of spirituality in this community through enjoyment in our garden park."
