Camp Washington volunteers are rolling up their sleeves and developing a two-acre parcel of land on the old Workhouse site into an urban garden. They also have the help of the River City Correctional Center residents who enjoy learning about farming and being outside.

They already have the winter crop in the ground. It consists of bibb lettuce, bok choy, peas, garlic bulbs and strawberries.
