Last week, curious about the Northampton Community Gardens behind Smith College on Rt. 66, I sat down with Mimi Teghtsoonian, a member of the garden committee and the de facto organizer of the gardens. She greeted me with a warm smile and a plethora of information about the gardens, ranging from the process for signing up for a plot to the origins of the whole organization. If you've ever wondered about the community gardens, or haven't even heard about them, spend your next five minutes with Mimi and me. You won't be disappointed.
