Haiku Poem – 市民農園

dried and withered
plants slowly coming back
gardeners dream

(Jim Woodhull)
かれた にわ おはな と うえき いきかえる

My wife has been a member of one of the community gardens here for a few years. It is a very nice system. In different parts of Oahu there are large areas for the garden and people apply for a plot of land which is usually around 3 by 3 meters or 10 by 10 feet. After my wife applied she waited for about 2 months and then a plot became available. It is very inexpensive, only $20.00 a year. Once you receive your plot you can grow anything you want but if you don’t take care of the plot it can be taken away from you. There is a meeting once a month with all of the members and there is a President and a Vice President position that changes every year. Because of the Corona Virus it was closed for about a month but it is open again on the week days. Unfortunately when it was closed most of the plants died but now it is back running again.
