LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – Residents in Louisville’s Parkland neighborhood continues the progression of their community garden.
Volunteers helped build boxes for fruit trees and planted herb beds Saturday morning.
Metro councilwoman Attica Scott brainstormed the volunteer event which she calls a “community fall harvest and build day.”
Scott says the garden has helped neighbors meet one another and has many other benefits that aren’t immediately obvious.
“Gardens help to address public safety issues because we have more folks paying attention to the neighborhood. They also help address food deserts, so people don't just depend on fast food restaurants, which are what are primarily located in the area,” she said.
The community garden is located at 28th and Dumesnil Streets.
