How quickly will this garden grow?

SOLON– Last fall, Chris Humrichouse got the seed of an idea stuck in her head.
She had read a newspaper article about several schools in Iowa City that had implemented garden projects in an effort to help provide fresh produce for their lunch programs and for others.
“I read this, and I thought, wouldn’t it be great to start a community garden?” she said.
During preparation for an evening meal at the Solon United Methodist Church (SUMC), where Humrichouse serves as Associate Pastor, she learned she wasn’t the only one who thought a community garden project would be great.
