Lowell Community Garden celebrates opening

FRESNO, Calif.

The project is part of the Lowell neighborhood, which has been two years in the making. Now, residents in the area have a community garden in which they can harvest a variety of vegetables.

"Four months ago this was a plot of bear dirt in a very unremarkable place close to a freeway," Mayor Ashley Swearengin said. "And yet today, four months later, it's been transformed into an incredible project thanks to residents organizing themselves."

Fresno ranks number two in the nation as a food insecure city. The community garden gives people a chance to feed themselves and their neighbors.
