The Boneyard Studios alley lot was purchased in March 2012.  The lot originally had overgrown grass, broken concrete, pooling water, garbage, illegal parking, and occasional criminal activity (e.g. a dumped stolen vehicle). A few pictures of the lot improvements from April-October 2012 (click on photos for full captions).

Boneyard amenities include:

  • Beautiful graveyard views
  • Electricity connection
  • A 250 gallon cistern for gardening watering
  • A community garden area with 10, 4×8′ plots, herb garden and composting area
  • An open green space
  • Small fruit orchard (currently planted: 2 apples, 3 cherries, 2 pear, 2 fig, 1 kumquat, 1 apricot, 1 plum, 1 serviceberry, 1 pomegranate, 4 blackberry and raspberry bushes, 3 rhubarbs; planned additions: grapes, peach, kiwi and nut tree).
  • A 20′ shipping container for bike storage+workshop
  • Great neighbors
  • Proximity to public transit lines and bike lanes
  • Less than 1 mile to local services: cafe, bar, small grocery store, wood-fired pizza restaurant, hospital.
  • Security camera

Here is the blogroll of the improvements:
