Tracy Keagle checks over cauliflower ruined by stagnant floodwaters over multiple days last week at the Humanity House Community Garden.

The first thing you notice about the Humanity House Community Garden is the smell.

Raw sewage and river bottom. Dead animals. Manure. Chemical runoff.

You can?t eat vegetables marinated for days in that combination, Humanity House?s Tracy Keagle said. It?s a potentially toxic mix that will take the garden out of commission for most of the season. The garden typically feeds about 1,000 local residents.
