Streetscape Salsa Garden
Ingersoll Avenue has been home to the “Streetscape Salsa Garden” – located near Louie’s Floor Covering (2709 Ingersoll Ave) – since 2022.
The Avenues of Ingersoll & Grand partnered with Eat Greater Des Moines and the Woodland Heights Neighborhood Association to turn two planter beds on the corridor’s streetscape into urban gardens filled with a variety of tomato and pepper plants.
The beds will be planted again in late May 2023. Once the produce is ready to be harvested, community members and passersby are invited to pick their own vegetables and enjoy them.
If you’d like to learn more about the Streetscape Salsa Garden or partner with us to continue the effort into future years, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. To contribute financially to the Streetscape Salsa Garden, you can make a donation here. All funds will be used to purchase signage, plants and infrastructure such as tomato cages.
