The article presents the author's experience of getting involved in community gardening. Coming from California and settling in Brooklyn, New York as a newly married couple, the author never imagined she could be able to go for community gardening. She worked in a publishing house and had no knowledge of farming either. She reluctantly started on the idea and now finds that it has changed her life completely. The four by six area of vegetables reportedly brought her closer to God's work.
