Kids Who Aren't Waiting for Grown-Ups' OK to Plant a Community Garden
They're planting one in Dolphin Heights, where, as we've mentioned before, the bcCORPS is preparing to give the neighborhood an extreme makeover a la bcWORKSHOP's work along Congo Street near Fair Park. Noe Medrano Jr., the young filmmaker turning that do-over into a doc, brings us this short about the digging being done in Dolphin Heights thanks to Anna Hill, president of the neighborhood association, and the kids who are part of its after-school program.
In the meantime, City Hall is still trying to figure out how to plant community gardens on city-owned vacant property. Expect a committee briefing this month, maybe.
