Edible Gardens

Common Ground, a Palo Alto organization dedicated to organic gardening, helped sponsor a tour of local organic home gardens. We spent a leisurely day, touring eleven gardens, from modest to lavish. Three were large – the rest shared small to moderate city lots with average-sized homes. Each was inspiring in a special way.
