Our View: Thumbs up to garden effort
Thumbs up: To DeKalb County Community Gardens, which is expanding this year. The group’s projects include a new, 30-bed garden near the DeKalb County Community Service Department, 2550 N. Annie Glidden Road. Volunteers are working on the garden today after leaders received $1,500 in federal grants for it. The garden will include a winding walking path, a circular bed with herbs, and wildflowers, prairie grass and picnic tables. The vegetables that grow there will serve the Women, Infants & Children program, Veterans Assistance Commission, residents at Heritage Woods and families enrolled in Head Start. The garden likely will provide a parklike atmosphere for the community, as well as produce for local people in need.
