The apartment has turned out to be everything Pat and I could need this Summer. We’re located 1.5 away from the garden site, 1 mile from St. Sebastian Parish School, .5 mile from an Acme grocery store, convenience at its finest. It’s a one bed room apartment with a front room, small kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom. I quickly took over the front room with my futon mattress, crafty storage box coffee table, and wire shelves from my dorm.The back bedroom is Pat’s territory.
Monday was a quality rainy Ohio day, no work. Today was our first day, orientation day! Pat and I met up with our site leader and mentor Dr. John Jewell at Einstein Bagel, about a mile down the road. Dr. Jewell was anxious to get the garden underway. We discussed some of his ideas and the layout of the garden. Later he gave us a tour of Akron’s Northwestern corridor.
