Little community garden on R St NW


Walked by the little community garden on 15th Street NW between R and S (back of Masonic Temple) getting ripped out, with an excavator and everything.  So sad – I loved that place! (walking around, not gardening)  Are they moving somewhere?  What’s going up instead — a tiny condo?

Unfortunately, the community garden was closed in November by the Temple.  I believe they said they needed the space as a staging area for construcion that was going on.

On Sunday a waman living across the street from the garden told me that they are planning to build a parking lot?! Odd decision. I would have guessed condo building as well. 

I was a gardener there and miss it terribly. The quote a fellow gardner used last year was “They paved paradise and put up a parking lot…!”  Not sure what they are building, but I believe it is for the temple’s use.  Kishan Putta

Heard it’s a staging area for equipment while the temple takes on substantial renovations. Probably years.
