Correction: Boston has the oldest continually operating community garden in the USA

Friends,
 
I defer to Betsy Johnson on this and most things community garden...
This New York boy stands corrected. The Richard Parker Memorial Victory Garden has been continuously operated since 1942, eh....
 
Well I gotta go to Boston for more than the Green Monster and James Levine taking over the music directorship of the Boston Symphony!
 
Best wishes,
Adam Honigman

Adam,
Eagle Heights is not THE oldest (just one of the oldest).  The Richard Parker Memorial Victory Gardens in Boston's Fenway area has been a continuously operating community garden since 1942 (there may be a few other of the war-time victory gardens around too).  The Fenway Victory Garden has 450 plots.  Betsy in Boston
