Sunnyvale Community Garden now in Google Earth

The Google chopper did a special, scheduled flyover of the Sunnyvale Community Garden on Charles Street a few weeks ago, and the data has now been integrated into Google Earth.

The map-style satellite pic is available for those who don't use the tool itself. Looks darn nice from the air, especially considering it's been a weed-ridden vacant lot for so many years.

Hats off again to the dedicated folks at Sustainable Community Gardens who worked for over 2 years to make this garden happen at all, and then were ready for spring planting in 2006 in only 2 or 3 months!

If you're a Sunnyvale resident, you can apply for the waiting list for a garden plot. However, they also need folks to take care of the Food Forest and other public plots, and there is a special area for differently-abled gardeners and senior gardeners, which may not be full yet. Contact them at the link above to find out more.

I see you're interested in gardening and have beautiful plant photos and interesting posts about gardening.

I want to invite you to participate in our Green Thumb Sunday blogroll. It's for gardeners or gardener wanna be's, house plant enthusiasts, and nature lovers.

All you need to do to participate is to post a picture on Sundays (at least once a month) of a plant in your yard or that you are growing, happened to see somewhere, a landscape or nature scene.

And to put up the (blogroll) links to the other participants, not so many yet, on your blogs sidebar.

Sounds easy doesn't it?

Come on, it's a lot of fun and we're gonna LOVE your GTS posts :-)

We would be thrilled to have you with us!

You can have a look at one of my GTS posts here:
(no need to write that much if you dont want to ;-)

If you want to join, just follow the link "Join GTS" :-)

Please let me know if you have any questions!
