Elm Street Gardens, Sparta

I’m always impressed by the wonderfully ordered and vibrant displays of Elm Street Gardens, and though these shots were made in different seasons, they give an idea of the dynamics of the project.

This certified organic no-till farm covers at least four acres and sells locally and beyond.

Suzy and Robert Currey have done an admirable job of creating a model for a successful organic farm in a small town.

Plantings of persimmon trees along the sidewalks throughout the neighborhood are a nice extension of the gardens.

It’s great to see this type of agriculture being practiced anywhere, but especially in Sparta.
