Texoma church plants community garden

WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) -

A Texoma church is teaching their community how to grow food with a community garden.

Park Place Christian Church members created the first five of 20 plots for their garden on Saturday.

People can buy a plot for a fee of $50 a year. They can plant whatever fruits or vegetables they want. The water is included in the purchase and so is the netting provides shade to the crops.

"As the produce builds we want to have an opportunity for people that can't afford fresh fruits and vegetables to come here and get it," Rev. Alice Hupp said. "We are also hoping that maybe at the time of harvest we can have a big harvest festival."

The church is planning on creating a prayer garden with a labyrinth near the plots.
