COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Sunday’s sunshine brought people out to the Red Roots Community Garden in Old North Columbus.
Volunteers planted more than 500 early season cold weather starts.
Cool season plants include leafy vegetables like kale, spinach, Brussels sprouts, leeks and more.
Organizers said it’s a great way to bring people into the community garden.
“It’s a really good way to get people engaged through the rest of the season as well,” said volunteer Alex Koltun. “Once people actually put something into the ground themselves they want to come back later and see how it’s going.”
This is the fifth year for the garden.
