Kids Who Aren't Waiting for Grown-Ups' OK to Plant a Community Garden

Dolphin Heights Initiative: In Our Garden... from bcCorps.org on Vimeo.

Speaking of community gardens ...

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.
