Thanks to the brand new Lodi Community Garden Foundation and a group of volunteers, an empty lot on the corner of Elm and Main streets is beginning to look a lot more colorful.

For two Saturdays in a row, the volunteers have weeded, spread mulch and wood chips, and prepared areas for planting.

The site will soon be a pollinator garden, with flowering plants that should attract plenty of butterflies, hummingbirds and honeybees to the soon-to-be colorful corner.

The lot’s owner has given the foundation permission to keep a pollinator garden at the site until he is ready to develop it in a few years. In the meantime, Lodi residents will be able to walk along the wood chip-lined paths and enjoy the flowers.

A mural will also be painted at the site, with work beginning during Love Lodi on April 29.
