In Julliard Park the community garden sits on former bocce ball courts. In other parks, some residents would like to replace under-used horseshoe courts with new gardens. That's not allowable under the new guidelines, explains Lisa Grant of Santa Rosas Recreation & Parks Department. After all, you never know if horseshoes, are set to make a big comeback in popularity.

iGrow is a local non-profit group, supported by Health Action, teaching and organizing community gardens in Sonoma County.
