While you are there, learn more about the People’s Garden, which has been in operation since 2011. It’s produced over 3,000 pounds of produce to be distributed locally since 2012, according to Louisville Grows, and higher yields are expected for 2014. You can also find out more about an urban farming project that Louisville Grows is working on, in conjunction with Louisville Metro Health and Wellness and the Mayor’s SummerWorks program. The young people learning about urban growing efforts and effectively communicating with and educating their communities will be at Saturday’s Market.
