Regarding the Corbett Slope

Relative to the news of a Corbett Slope cleanup:

Using the 341 Corbett space as a community garden would be wonderful!  Little anecdote - when I first moved to 311 Corbett, in 1978, the neighborhood was heavily populated with little old ladies, some of whom used that space as a community garden. I once asked one of the women if I could have some space, and she looked at me suspiciously and said, "I don't know, sonny, you don't look like the type that would keep it up!"  And she was probably right.  She may have been the same lady that came up to me and my son and a friend of his in 1979, when we were playing frisbee at Corbett and Mars, and told us,  "We don't play frisbee on Corbett!"  I was so taken aback that I actually stopped.
