A Community Blossoms in Fox Point
At the entrance of the Fox Point Community Garden in Providence, a painted sign greets guests: “Welcome visitors! You can pick your friends, you can pick your nose, but please don’t pick our veggies.”
Inside, gardeners Anastasia Azure and Michael Soucy kneel over plot 75 of 127, brandishing clippers against tall winter rye grass. Azure and Soucy are two of about 100 members of the Fox Point Community Garden (FPCG), and they consider themselves lucky. “There’s a pretty big waitlist,” says Azure.
