Tamika Esho and Carolyn Huston do not know each other formally although the two share a common interest at the same location. The pair is part of a growing number of people living in the city who want to experience the enjoyment of growing their own food products in an urban community setting.
In May, Tamika learned of the small plots of land that could be rented to would-be farmers for $20, or an amount according to a individual’s ability to pay.
The whole idea is the brainstorm of the Racine Urban Garden Network. The network seeks to promote a strong gardening effort in the Racine area, and to create a network of resources and education to improve sustainable gardening and farming.
