A longtime Galt resident picks up a garden hoe, slashing at the hard dirt. Nearby, another resident is molding the dirt into small hills. A packet of string bean seeds sits nearby. Yet another holds a gardening hose while she carefully sprays seedlings peeking out for their first glance at the sun.
Those are parts of a vision Galt City Councilwoman Barbara Payne would like to see in a new community garden at Harvey Park, 248, C St. in the city’s historic area.
