Located off Newport and 10th Avenue, the Jay Perry Community garden allows residents to grow fresh produce. The city also offers mentoring from WSU gardeners. Folks we talked to say it is an invaluable educational tool.
"Gives them a good idea for botany, even to have them help, garden, grow things to see them plant something and then grow it, it's a good thing for them."
Officials tell us that it took over one thousand man hours to complete the garden. A cost of four thousand to the city.
