A team of volunteers broke ground Wednesday on a new community garden adjacent to Third Space, the new name for the venue at 946 Olive Drive venue shared by the Davis Flea Market and a new art collective.

The garden on the north side of the building is part of an effort to “beautify and invigorate” Olive Drive, says Davis Flea Market founder Lauren Norton. “Currently, the area is home to sprawling weeds, scrub brush and trash, but after (Wednesday) it will be a viable, productive garden!”

All are welcome to check out the garden when they visit the Davis Flea Market between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. Sunday.

The garden will be maintained by the Davis Dollars Gardening Team and volunteers at Third Space, Norton says.

“We’re hoping it will convince other aspiring gardeners to work on another chunk of the available land here,” she adds. “Folks interested in that can email me at lauren@davisfleamarket.org.”

The Third Space Art Collective is a group of independent artists, performers and educators who are “striving to enrich the culture of our community by making the creation and exhibition of art and music accessible to people regardless of age or economic standing,” says organizer Sally Hensel.

“We emphasize the ideals of DIY philosophy (do it yourself): empowering people by providing access to tools, materials and knowledge necessary to become active participants in their creative community,” she continues.

“Our goal is threefold: One: to maintain a space to be used as a shared and dedicated art studio for collective members. Two: to provide a space where our community members can learn and practice skills and share ideas. Three: to operate a venue where art and music can be showcased.”
