Last week we posted about a front yard garden that was under attack in Tennessee. Well, we are happy to report that the future is looking bright for Adam Guerrero’s garden!
After the social media outcry of the past few weeks, Guerrero’s story has moved toward a happy resolution: He will keep his front yard garden trimmed, install a bubbler and introduce mosquito-eating fish into his backyard pond, reduce the number of on-site worm bins, and install mesh covers on his rain barrels to keep mosquitoes out.
Judge Potter also advocated finding a piece of blighted property for Guerrero to devote to an educational garden. The City of Memphis is currently working to identify vacant land where Guerrero could grow a community garden! So for now, all looks green in the case of Adam Guerrero’s garden.
Thanks so much to all of you who supported this cause. It shows that even a small effort can make a huge positive change!
