 Blake and Maple, 6-month-old sisters, look through the sunflower garden growing outside their window on Maple Street in downtown Lewiston on Wednesday evening. Cat owner Ari Rosenberg said the sunflowers were planted where the apartment building’s driveway once was.

Six people share ownership of the building, called Faire-Op, Lewiston’s first housing cooperative.
