Board wary of community garden in front of school

The school board is hesitating on a decision about whether to allow a community garden in front of Union Street School.


  1. My vote: lawn, nice clean, well kept, lawn. I've seen the 'garden' in front of riverside school. It all may start out with wonderful intentions, but it turns into a pile of weeds. Lawn.

  2. ^ X2. This is not the Bronx and public gardens are not a fit here. As mentioned, they start with the best of intentions by do-gooders and ultimately become an eyesore. Springfield needs to insure that doesn't continue to happen.

  3. I agree with the others, these types of plans sound good in theory and never last, I've seen these gardens start out and then they just become abandoned and then who cleans them up and puts them back to where they are now the tax payers. Also sure brings around a lot of people to the school area, who knows who is out there, some for good, maybe some up to no good. I have granddaughter's that go there, I would keep the property to the people who are associated with the school, and hopefully everyone knows who should be in the area.
