There’s a very active senior citizens center a block away from my rental property, where I used to live. It’s a beautiful old building, which hosts block watch parties, neighborhood festivals and the polls during elections.
Members of the Eleanor Kale Senior Center plant these hydroponic gardens every year. Apparently, plants are grown in nutrients, without soil. They must do well, since the project gets bigger each year.
This particular neighborhood has a city pool, which hasn’t opened for the last two summers due to economic troubles. It’s nice to see this kind of neighborhood projects where they’re really needed!
