Starting up a garden in the community

As the spring begins to turn into summer, the food bank is doing its part in trying to help the local community.

The city of Price has given the food bank the lot to grow a garden and help provide fresh, handpicked vegetables to those who use the food bank. This is the sixth year at the current lot located at 300 S. 100 E., in a lot next to the food bank.

Volunteers with VISTA and community members offering a helping hand, came out on Friday, May 14 to begin raking up weeds, prepping the soil and planting the seeds.

The garden will have a number of different plants being grow including tomatoes, bell peppers, squash, lemons, cucumbers, pees, corn, radishes, beetes, carrots and purple carrots.

"We always need help from volunteers to help clean up the weeds and help pick the vegetables," said Jackie Butkovich, community services program manager with Southeastern Utah Local Associations with Governments. The garden will be used to grow vegetables and other plants until the frost hits Price.
