Saturday Photo: A Community Garden in a Changing Part of Town

Urban farming is alive and well in Montreal.  This community garden was once space the city didn't need any more for its yards, and so was saved from sale and development by being transformed in productive green space.

The neighborhood once was industrial, but is being steadily gentrified.  That's an old factory that's being turned in condos in the background.  Nice to see the change being accompanied by an increase in interest in gardening.
