Community Gardens Face Water Shut Off

By Nick Kotecki and Janice Christensen

City Plans Policy Change:

Community Gardens Face Water Shut-Off 

Community gardening is expanding in Milwaukee. Last season there were 78 raised bed gardens in Kilbourn Park. This year there are 123.

On Memorial Day the Victory Garden Initiative (VGI) held their second annual Victory Garden Blitz and installed more than 100 back yard gardens throughout the city.

Hide House Community Garden in Bay View has 110 raised beds.

Editorial: Letter From Zagora

Editorial: Letter from Zagora     

ED. NOTE: Every few months the Riverwest Currents receives a mysterious missive that seems to be from the future.

They come with clear instructions about how and when to publish them. The writer often refers to some kind of  cause and effect notion – we need to print the letter now, so that something specific will happen, and the future of  the letter will be the future that comes about. We’ve toyed with the idea that, if we didn’t print a letter, perhaps the  future they come from would wink out of existence, and the letters would cease. We decided not to take that chance.
