Weeding Wednesdays at Frankie Machine Community Garden by M. Isaacson

The Frankie Machine Community Garden, located at the corner of Haddon and
Wood Streets, was established by the East Village Association in 1988. Most
of the garden consists of individual plots that are used by people who don’t
have their own backyards to garden in. However, the garden also needs a lot
of general maintenance: taking care of the parkways, garden borders, composting
and, of course, picking up the ever-present trash.
Garden administrator Laura Bedolla will be working at the garden on Wednesday
evenings throughout the growing season, after 6:30 p.m. Gardening is good exercise and psychologically
soothing. If you want to help, come on by. For further information, contact Marjie at 773-384-6088.
