The Highland Community Garden looks full and lush even this early in the growing season. You'll find it at the corner of Stephens and Herndon Street, just across the way from Noel Memorial United Methodist Church.
There's a little red topped information box full of flyers if you want to get involved. Most Saturdays there's an experienced gardener there to answer questions from 9 AM until 11 AM but since this Saturday is Earth Day things might be a little different. The contact number is 227-7685. Ask for Shelia or Mike.
"I found bliss early. It was reading or thinking in the spread out trunk of a pink flowered mimosa tree in our front yard.
I made my freest art back then. When I was a little kid alone in my room, I danced to music from a tiny record player. I had a built up platform in the bottom of my closet, so I would push the clothes back on either side and dance away in funky costumes I found around the house. Now when I create art, I am seeking to go back to my bliss." Usher May 24, 2010
