Community garden gets a boost from Rep. Kaptur

TOLEDO -- When you shop for fresh vegetables it's usually at a fruit market or grocery store, right? You probably never thought of heading to the Old West End to pick your favorites.

But, you might, after seeing the Glenwood Community Garden. It's one of 50 in Northwest Ohio that is planted, cared for and harvested by community members.

On Saturday, gardeners received some extra help from Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur (D, Ohio) as she lent a hand.

"They are raising vegetables, they're raising different types of spices and herbs and they are distributed to the needy and our feeding kitchens" Kaptur said as she worked.

All the community gardens in the area are open nearly every day of the year.
