The Birdtown garden is located in the Cass Corridor neighborhood. I was lucky enough to spend some time talking with one of the gardeners when I happened to ride by. This garden has been here for over 10 years. It is tended by a group of people who meet one night a week. They don’t actually own the land. It was a vacant lot and they planted and made it beautiful. Unfortunately, the business next door is thriving and wants to expand, which would mean taking over the land the garden is on. The gardener himself that we talked with seemed torn. He was genuinely happy that a business was doing so well in a neighboorhood that most people avoid but he was upset that they may lose their garden.
