Despite the drizzle and gloom, two colorful handpainted murals went up on the fence of the Hudson Community Garden today, and more are on the way.
The Register-Star reported today that the Hudson Community Garden has signed a lease for 2014 with HCDPA (Hudson Community Development & Planning Agency): "Community garden gets 1-year lease." This would seem to be good news, but, as garden directors Vanessa Baehr and Sarah Falkner point out, "It's the same lease we've had over the years which stipulates it can be broken at any time to be developed." Also, HCDPA executive director Sheena Salvino recently informed them that a good part of the parcel which has been developed as a garden over the past two decades is not included in the lease.
HCDPA meets tonight at 6:30 at City Hall.
