WINSTON-SALEM - After two months of preparation.. volunteers with the Winston-Salem non-profit Sustainable Ardmore got the hands dirty.
The Ardmore Gateway Garden community gardening project formally got underway with an inaugural planting of 16 garden plots.
The garden is located on Hawthorne Road in Winston-Salem, across the street from the Ronald McDonald house. Organizers hope to encourage the community to return to a more natural relationship with its food supply.
Since its formation a year ago, Sustainable Ardmore has blossomed. More than 250 people have worked with the organization as members, sponsors, volunteers and gardeners.
