Its benefits are the reasons why one Lassen County resident is working to start a local community garden.

According to Kate Hansen, who is spearheading the project, people will be able to purchase a raised garden bed for a nominal fee to grow food.

“Food, flowers and organic only is kind of what we’re going for,” she said.

Tuesday, May 5, 2015 — The second annual Walk A Mile In Their Shoes — Engaging Communities, Empowering Victims — was a time to challenge people to do more.

The event coincides with National Crime Victims’ Rights Week April 19 through April 25 and is presented by Lassen Family Services and the Lassen County Victim Witness.

“In our community, virtually everyone is or knows a victim or survivor of crime. In fact, in 2014, Lassen Family Services provided assistance to approximately 1,365 residents representing one in 16 people in the county,” said Lassen Family Services executive director Melissa Downing. “As you look at the crowd of people gathered today, victims of crime stand next to you and with you to engage in a common effort in the pursuit of justice.”

For “Better Call Saul” fans, PSREC customer Josh Hart’s malady is the same thing Saul Goodman’s brother, Chuck, struggles with when wearing his tinfoil blanket and banning cellphones from his house.

“I’m glad it’s getting mainstream attention,” Hart said of the TV show.
