Lisa Barkley’s Orchard

Lisa Barkley’s community garden fills the empty lots adjacent to the public housing project where she lives. The vegetable garden is for kids, but the fruit tree orchard is for adults, an oasis for grown-ups looking for some “me” time. In this short video, Lisa explains why planting a flower felt like a challenge to the status quo.  Lisa’s single flower began a gardening movement at Haddington Homes that continues to impact the lives and health of the residents.
