Photo: COVID Community Get-to-know-you Gardens (2020)

By Stephanie Henry

When we got engaged and decided that I would give up my place and move in my partner, we had no idea that the world was going to come crashing down just a few short weeks later. As weeks of isolation dragged on, I decided to create these mini-gardens as a way to meet the neighbors. These were assembled over a few weeks, with little notes introducing me as their new neighbor and suggesting some uses for the assorted starts. We went for a couple of walks, dropping them off on doorsteps and porches throughout the neighborhood, where the responses ranged from bewildered to enthusiastic.By downloading this image, you agree to use the photo within the context that it was taken.
