This is the story of how a community garden came to be. Each chapter is one person’s story of how they stumbled upon and became involved in cleaning up an empty lot and slowly changing it into a garden. It is a very short and simple story, and also very insightful. About people and especially about what it means to immigrate and live in America. I can read the book in about 30 minutes. And I often do. You could probably read it in about two hours. What a great way to spend an afternoon in a cafe.
