When Emily discovers an empty lot that used to be a community garden, she and her crafty friends make it bloom once again in this seventh book of the Craftily Ever After chapter book series.
Emily Adams learns that an empty dirt lot in town used to be a beautiful garden but now it’s about to be paved over. So, she decides to take action. Emily and her three crafty friends, Maddie, Bella, and Sam decide the best way to save the old garden is to create a new one! But first they have to get the neighborhood on board. They research why gardens are great for the environment and the community, and they present the information to their friends, family, and neighbors. The last person they have to convince is the mayor himself. The friends know that no matter what happens, they’ll be best buds forever…but will the mayor like their plan?
