Savannah is celebrating Earth Day today by opening the city's first urban community garden. Taking advantage of a new city ordinance, Windsor Forest High School students are growing food in their own community.
Community gardens are getting a shot in the arm in Savannah. City officials recently approved an ordinance allowing residents to grow fruits and vegetables on more than a thousand city-owned properties. Gardeners have to apply for a permit. They can't sell what they grow. And the plots will be monitored to prevent blight.
