Springfield Community Gardens continues to expand with plans for a new plot in the city’s Zone 1 region. These gardens help bring the community together while producing food for local entities.

Alexa Poindexter, who manages the Market Garden, takes me through the rows of vegetables that it currently has to offer. The garden is one of nearly two dozen that Springfield Community Gardens has throughout Springfield. She says these plots often serve as points of contact with passersby.
