Originally envisioned in the Penrose Neighborhood Framework Plan, construction of the Market Garden begins Spring 2013. The result of a shared vision and collaboration among various stakeholders, the half-acre entrepreneurial market garden is integrated into the Penrose neighborhood. The project includes a farmhouse community building with a community kitchen and two apartments for market gardeners and interns. The Market Garden will be a demonstration and educational facility for the community. It is also associated with the Penrose Art House and Art Garden educational programs for youth. The Market Garden facilities bring outdoor civic spaces to a neighborhood with lots of open space but no shared spaces.
