We are starting a new community garden in the Larchmere, Shaker Square, Shaker Heights area. The Larchmere Community Garden will begin taking applications in June. In the meantime volunteers are needed to help build the garden. The garden will have 15-25 individual plots (depending on size) for gardeners as well as community learning plots for children and adults. There will be a communal space for gatherings and mini workshops on organic and sustainable gardening methods and permaculture principles. The plans for next year include a small orchard of dwarf fruit and nut trees, berry bushes and a grape arbor for “community fruit”. Gardeners of all skill levels are welcome. Contact me through the Local Food Cleveland website if you are interested in joining us or just want more information.

I'm worried about the late blight returning from last year on my plot. Is there any advice? Could it survive through the winter in the soil? Any information would be helpful.
