The sculpture "garden" at Convention Center

You know what would really improve that sad wasteland?

Growing things ... You know, gardens.

Work with MPFS community gardens program to round up gardeners, get the Convention Center to underwrite all the costs, Fresh Start youth to build raised beds, set up irrigation systems, and presto!

Life in an otherwise sterile, dead, depressing place.

Good southern exposure, so great sun. A bunch of raised beds, an enclosed shed for garden tools, and then the sculpture could be in a garden.

Could even build a few handicapped-accessible raised beds designed to allow a person in a mobility chair to get underneath the ledge so that handicapped folks could garden too.

Gardeners split proceeds with MPFS.
