The Point Park Marketplace just keeps growing.
And growing fresh produce is what the newest addition is all about.
A community garden is coming to the marketplace.
It will feature 49 raised bed plots, including five handicap-accessible beds.
A fountain and greenhouse are also part of the project.
It will be available for use for fall crops later this year.
The public can lease the plots for a fee to be determined soon.
Organizers say it's all about getting the community engaged in agriculture.
"We import $7.3 billion in food a year in West Virginia and we only grow a half a billion and we have a great opportunity there where that difference is to grow our own produce instead of importing it in from other states," says Jarrod Dean, with the West Virginia Department of Agriculture.
The West Virginia Department of Agricluture and Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield are among those making the project possible.
Anyone interested in leasing a raised bed should call (304) 558-3200.
