A project to model small-scale gardening as a way to boost healthy food availability is under way at the Naperville garden plots. Volunteers with the nonprofit Obama Legacy Initiative are growing vegetables in seven raised garden beds that have been painted by artists for auction.

They’re also growing in 20 more raised beds, with the veggies and the structures set to be donated to food pantries to help clients in need.
