Community garden fundraiser

Wednesday, May 6, 2015 — Gardening is not only a way to provide families with fresh organic produce, it can also be a therapeutic hobby.

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.
