DeSoto residents building community garden

Posted: Updated:

DeSoto -- Groups in DeSoto are working to bring a community garden to life. 

The land between Oak Street and the rail roads tracks will be tilled up and offered to neighbors to plant, tend and harvest. 

The idea came about when a family from Iowa moved to southern Illinois with aims to strengthen the community. 

"Our hope is that we bring the community together," Paul Waterman, of DeSoto, said," and that people will have access to fresh produce right here at a very inexpensive cost or at no cost at all."

Organizers said there will be 10x10 plots available for a suggested donation of just $10.
