Simple Living Institute helped to start a new community garden downtown Orlando last weekend. The garden is located south of Lake Formosa and north of Virginia Ave near Ethos Vegan Kitchen. Despite the rain and gloom, twelve people participated in the start up of this new community garden. We built two biointensive garden beds and planted a fenceline permaculture garden consisting of bananas, papayas, Okinawan spinach, sugarcane, and basil. This community garden is open to the public and anyone is welcome to join in. Thanks to everyone who helped! Our next workday is scheduled for Saturday January 9th from 10am-1pm.
