West Hollywood's last community garden, set to close at the end of August, is still holding on for dear life. The Beverly Press reports [PDF] that the Norwich Community Garden got a sweet reprieve thanks to the city negotiating a month-to-month lease with the plot's owners. As previously reported, the garden has been leased out to the city (apparently for a very affordable price) since WeHo's inception in 1984, but once the owner died, his heirs were hit with a hefty inheritance tax which necessitated them selling the garden. Until the sale, the garden will continue to soothe the souls of its 27 gardeners. And even better, on Tuesday the city council will discuss possible relocation sites for the Norwich Garden.
