Grant Garden update

 - the most shocking news is that it's $10,000 to put a chainlink fence around the garden. That's a lot more than what was planned. The gardens on the water department property do not have such a fence. The garden beds suggested would also be very expensive - it would take up to eight years to grow enough vegetables in the beds to pay for them.
There are a lot of kinks to be worked out as this garden in Grant Park is a pilot project - it's the first community garden in a city park. Communication is going well between parks and the city, and the steering committee for the Grant Garden. The plan is to dedicate the garden to someone at the Street Fair and Parade on July 16.
The South Perry Business and Neighborhood Association is the fiscal agent and the contract holder, together with the Grant Park Steering Committee.
