Garden Station is a community garden at the corner of E. 4th Street and Wayne Avenue in Dayton. Volunteers have transformed a vacant lot full of trash and questionable materials into a hub of community activity. You can see more pictures and get links to their press at the Garden Station facebook page. We caught up with volunteer Lisa Helm to get the dirt.
