Louisville, Ky. (WHAS11) - There is a major expansion planned for an organic garden at the University of Louisville.


Dozens of volunteers showed up on campus this weekend to build a greenhouse, plant garden beds and set up compost bins and rain barrels.
 
The 6,000 square foot garden sits on the north end of the Belknap campus.
 
Louisville Grows, a local non-profit that promotes sustainability helped U of L create the garden last year.
 
The group says students have been more than willing to help.

"Students have been super responsive. When we did our very first presentation on this project, we had 150-200 students show up and we've come up with about 25-30 students to create this group that have been very coordinated and supportive of us," said Mason Roberts, executive director of Louisville Grows.

Louisville grows helps organizations set up community gardens and is looking for volunteers.
