At Cliff Manor Tomorrow, Getting Down and Dirty in the New Community Garden

Back at the big kick-off lunch for Dallas Justice Revival's Homes for Our Neighbors campaign, we heard about plans to build a community garden for Cliff Manor residents -- an olive branch of sorts between the apartment complex and its neighbors, built in the image of other nearby gardens organized by Mariana Griggs and Cliff Temple Baptist's garden-builder Wes Keyes.

After the work day they'd planned for two weeks ago got rained out, though, they rescheduled the gardening for tomorrow morning. In the meantime, as you can see above (and after the jump) there's been plenty of progress already, which Keyes says has all been performed either by residents or volunteers.

They'll get to work building and filling the last 10 planters starting around 8:30 tomorrow morning, and while Keyes says they've got plenty of volunteers, they can use donations of newspapers and cardboard to line the planters and pathways to keep roots from mingling.

Jump for more shots of the garden progress so far.
