Community building

Volunteers and neighbors gathered for the dedication of the Maple Leaf Community Garden, located near the southeast corner of Northeast 103rd Street and Fifth Avenue Northeast on Saturday, April 28. A p-patch with 22 plots, a tool shed made of mud and straw and a tiled staircase made by Olympic View elementary students and Tina Carpenter now occupy the formerly vacant site. The garden was developed in large part by Maple Leaf Community Council member Barbara Maxwell , who received a golden shovel for her efforts.
