I love visiting community gardens. They come in all shapes and size (and levels of maintenance, too). Some have art work, some are focused on production of vegetables, and others are a mix.
Burton Street Community Peace Garden is on the Asheville Fling (the fifth Garden Bloggers Fling) first day tour. As a bus "captain" -- I was doing my homework. The Fling is this weekend. My first drive-by found me unimpressed.
But a second, more thorough visit, revealed the eclectic nature of the space and the enthusiasm that both gardeners and artists have brought. Check out this great pavilion that was recently added.
