Community garden fights food insecurity

Peace and Carrots community garden is located on Bonita Avenue and E Street next to the Church of the Brethren parking lot. The volunteers who run the garden donate food that is grown from local food banks. Two of the garden plots are set aside for the Headstart preschool classes offered at the Church. The teachers use the planting and harvesting of the vegetables they grow to teach the children about nutrition. / photo by Kim Toth
