Start Now Gardens on Bloomington Avenue
by Jean Schanen
My husband and I operate an urban farm on Bloomington Avenue in Bremerton, Washington. At first our goal was to grow our own food. That was easy. Then a neighbour who loved gardening, but no longer could, gave us space in her yard for garden beds, and the neighbour on the other side, who didn’t want to have to mow the inconvenient front strip of his yard, gave us more space.
More beds on the roof, more beds along the alley, and soon we were raising enough vegetables and berries to stock a table at the farmers market. We are now the proprietors of an urban farm, set right in our busy neighbourhood!
