A new community garden opened Sunday in the Lakeside and Lester Park area.

The garden has over 30 plots available for community members to use. Several of the plots went to CHUM and other food shelves to grow fresh vegetables.

Other plots went to students at Lester Park Elementary School. The second and fifth graders will be using them to learn about urban gardening.

Planning began in September 2013 and organizers said it took off from there.

"When we put this together and we're working on it, I met more people in the community here than I saw inside the church," Faith Lutheran Church Pastor Larry Goebel said. "So, it was a great experience to be outside."

The first plants were just planted at the beginning of this month. If you would like to get a plot in the garden, there is still a few remaining garden beds available.

For more information, contact Faith Lutheran Church on 51st Avenue East.
