Laurie Zook starts urban community garden

I was excited to read in the Gazette that Laurie Zook has gone and started an urban community garden in her backyard. The image is from Tom Fedor of the Gazette, and the caption reads: "Jennifer Irmen of Frederick plants vegetables in a community garden plot made available at the Frederick home of Laurie Zook (not pictured) on Saturday."

I had a chat with Laurie one night while I was out in town and she told me that she was determined to start a community garden. I thought this sounded great; I have friends out in the country that have community gardens, but none in the city (though I do know lots of urban gardeners!)

Laurie is looking for two more gardeners, though my guess is that she may have found them by now.
