Standing in front of rows of dirt, the Rev. Jack Dawson envisions a robust garden with tomato, squash and jalapeno plants.

On Saturday, members of his congregation, the United Congregational Christian Church, and other community members met at 7 a.m. to start spreading the seed and carefully placing plants in the ground in what they hope will be a large community garden.

    Good Idea, now the question is, how high will the fence be to keep the unwanted vegetables thiefs out.Concerning organic, check for worms before eating. If not organic, wash before eating, that should take care of any problems.

    What a great idea! There is nothing like growing your own vegetables and knowing that you are self-sufficient; it gives one a sense of self-empowerment and I like the fact that this is appealing to ALL members of Lodi.Wonderful! Just hope it's organic. LOL!
