Salsa on a hot day

Jul 8, 2007

I was finishing up some yard work, sweat dripping down my face, when neighbor-friends Justine, Gabe and Jay walked by on their way to the Welkin Court Salsa Walk. Sounds interesting, I thought, so I went inside, showered and dressed, and walked through the neighborhood to that nearby street.

Seems the residents of Welkin have taken to gardening in their yards, and even have a shared community garden. To showcase their communal food-growing spirit, they organized a block party in which more than two dozen varieties of salsa were out for the tasting. And some of them were quite good.

What a fantastic way to bring a neighborhood together. Bravo, Welkin Court families.
