Fall is harvest season! I guess it is my agrarian heritage that creates the strong connection to this time of year. In Elliotborough we have the opportunity to see the fall harvest up close in our two community gardens. Saturday morning we made a tour of the neighborhood to study the fall changes.
The “Bogarden” on the corner of Bogard St. and Line St. in downtown Charleston, Sc is a very successful community garden project tended by neighborhood residents.

Elliotborough Park Community Garden in downtown Charleston is a great place for children to play while parents tend their thriving plots. Elliotborough Park will be the location for this year’s neighborhood Halloween Festival and Parade. The parade will begin in Midtown Development and end with festivities at the Elliotborough park on Line St. The Halloween Festival will be held on Saturday October 30th from 6:30-9:30. Attendees are encouraged to don costumes and join the parade. Mitchell elementary school and montessori are sponsoring loads of activities at the finale in the park. There will also be food and beverages as well as live music.
Community schools and neighborhood residents can sponsor garden spots for more information about obtaining your own spot contact the neighborhood association through the website www.elliotborough.org
