Jodi and Scott McMillian tend their plots in the East End community garden Sunday afternoon. A bill to be introduced at City Council next Monday would make such gardens legal without any special permit or paperwork anywhere in the city.
The community garden at Carroll Terrace has been going strong for several years now -- part of an urban agriculture movement that has been sweeping the country.
An engraved rock in the Carroll Terrace Community Garden honors its founders. City Council members hope to set out rules for other urban agriculture activities, like raising laying hens, in a bill to be introduced next week.
