Hydroponic Community Garden

Unusual? Not many community gardens feature experimental hydroponics, but this one is different.

In the East Ocean View district of Norfolk, VA, an empty lot has been turned into a successful community garden. JoAnne Merinar from Bon Secours and Deborah Lutz, a landscape designer that lives in neighborhood explain the strategies and hopes for the Community Garden, now in it’s 5th year. From an efficient hydroponics system to raised beds and square foot gardening, The East Ocean View Community Garden ups the bar for community gardens.
