Do you enjoy wandering the open air markets like Soulard and breathing in the sweet, earthy aromas of herbs, fruits and vegetables? Summer is the perfect time for fresh produce and while trips to the markets make for an enjoyable afternoon, many residents are joining the growing trend of planting their own urban gardens. Not only cost effective, urban gardens bring community together, encourage children to learn about healthy foods and create a vibrant landscape in the neighborhood.The Land Reutilization Authority (LRA) is offering residents the opportunity to lease vacant lots through their Garden Lease Program for only $1 per year. The lots are available to individuals, neighborhood associations and to community organizations. The garden lease allows you site control so that you can add a fence to prevent foot traffic, build your urban garden or just enjoy the extra space. In return, you are responsible for all maintenance.
