Paradise Community Garden Spotlight - Sandra Nevala-Lee

As we near our one-year-anniversary for Paradise Community Garden, we would like to highlight our Community Gardeners who have helped make Paradise what it is today.  Check out Sandra's story:

I've always been interested in community gardening and once walked many blocks in New York City visit a garden. I met Shanale last spring and she told me about the garden opening on Mission Blvd. Right away, I knew I wanted to be part of it. Last summer, my garden bed yielded many zucchinis, tomatoes, parsley. This year, I am picking blueberries and strawberries. Besides reaping food, the garden opens doors to new friendships and I love how each garden box reflects the individual spirit of the gardener. It's great to be part of transforming a former vacant lot into a beautiful green space!
