Jessie Knott watches as her sons Porter Knott, 2, and Preston Knott, 4, water the plants in their garden Tuesday morning at the Emerson Community Garden on Emerson Street in Sheridan. Community gardens are divided into subplots that anyone can use to plant their vegetables for an annual fee. Tools, water and compost are usually provided along with expertise of experienced gardeners. The community aspect becomes evident when abundant produce is shared and neighbors help with watering duties when a gardener leaves town for some time. There are two public community gardens located on Emerson Street a block before Sheltered Acres Park and next to Sagebrush Elementary School on North Heights Avenue.
