Goleta Mulls New Community Garden


The Goleta City Council this week explored the creation of a community garden, after Councilmember Jim Farr requested that the idea be examined at a meeting in February. Whether there will be several gardens or just one ​— ​Armitos Park in Old Town was suggested ​— ​will be one of the focuses of a Parks and Recreation Commission study; other variables include whether the garden would offer communal space or individual plots and what types of plants would be grown.
