Fairmount Community Garden and Big Snakes in the City


This week we are building a shelter for the Fairmount Community Garden. This garden was nationally recognized recently when Fairmount was named a “Neighborhood of the Year” by Neighborhoods USA. http://www.nusa.org/PDF/2012NUSA%20Broch_Ltr.pdf

The gardens’ success stems from a host of hard-working volunteers, the City of Fort Worth, and donations from companies and individuals. If you haven’t been to the Fairmount neighborhood in a while, you should visit. The charm of the neighborhood is really coming back—many of the homes have been remodeled and rebuilt under the watchful eye of the Fort Worth Historical Society—and Magnolia Avenue is filling up with some great restaurants and shops. Be sure to visit Old Home Supply for a historical home supply treasure hunt. http://www.oldhomesupplyhouse.com/ Read more
