Winter crops have been harvested, and the well-tended furrows and raised beds at the DeWees City Farms Garden in Govans are bursting with the promise of a summer bounty of dozens of varieties of vegetables, fruits and flowers. DeWees is one of seven community gardens where city residents can rent 10-by-5-foot plots; many have nurtured the same plots for decades. Residents share mulch and tools as well as gardening tips that have been passed down through multiple generations and diverse cultures.
