From Fair Haven Heights to West Hills, New Haven’s community gardens will get a spring boost this Saturday, and be on display for interested cyclists.
The occasion is Citywide Open Garden Day, hosted by the New Haven Land Trust.
The trust is asking neighbors to show up between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the community garden nearest to them to help with a spring clean-up. Besides beautifying neighborhoods, the gardens provide food for many households. They began cropping up in town in the 1990s.
