The design of the garden is only limited by the gardener's imagination. The white picket-style fence encloses a garden with a raised plot on the left and wire cages (top left) for tomatoes.

The individual plots are identified with the gardener's construction of their borders and, in some cases, wooden wind chimes.

Jack Boch is beginning to see the fruits, or in this case the vegetables, of his labor sprouting at the Greer Memorial Hospital Community Garden.

Two weeks ago Boch meticulously planted, seed by seed, beans spaced by his measurements. The bamboo-rimmed garden is Boch’s signature construction.

Boch said he is an eastern transplant enjoying pitting his primitive gardening skills against his southern neighbors.

The past week Boch’s beans were sprouting and his squash was flowering.

This is the second year of the GMS community garden.
