Update on Poplar Street Community Garden: It’s 25 Years Old Now!

Last week we posted about a party this coming Saturday, June 15 from noon to 3:00 p.m. at the Poplar Street Community Garden, located at the northwest corner of Poplar and Hicks streets. What we didn’t know at the time was that this year marks the Garden’s 25th anniversary. The photo above shows it in 2010.

    How will the proposed plans for the BQE reconstruction affect the garden? Note that it’s right next to the off-ramp from the BQE.
