The Nine-Hundred Block of Drouillard Road (Google Streetview)

When Adler’s Bakery went burning to the ground last year, it put a significant hole in the middle of the urban landscape on Drouillard Road.  Now, a group of community garden planners are putting together revitalization plans for a parcel of land across the street from the burned-out facility.

The Ford City Community Garden is a new initiative by Steve Green, founder of Windsor Essex Community Supported Agriculture and CLUCK (Canadian Liberated Urban Chicken Klub Windsor-Essex) and several others.

“We hope to have most of the planning done this winter and we will plant our first crops this spring,” says Green, “If we are lucky we may get some garlic in this fall for the winter time.”

Green has set up a blog for the Ford City Community Garden, and has organized its first planning meeting for October 21st at 6:30pm.

For more information, take a look at the Ford City Community Garden’s blog.
