There's an effort underway to spruce up one of the Henderson's neighborhoods by creating a community garden.
Melodie Shrader and her husband own the lot on Washington Street and for the last month they've been working on the project. They're hoping many people in the east end neighborhood will participate by signing up for their own 4x10 bed to go whatever kinds of foods or plants they want.
They already have 11 of those spots claimed, but have eight open ones for anyone else who'd like to participate in the neighborhood. They also have four other beds they say they could use to accommodate those with special needs or the elderly.
The idea is to involve children and to educate them about foods and how to grow them and also to help revitalize and beautify the neighborhood.
