"The whole idea of community gardens is becoming very popular," Jensen said. "They are needed all over and the idea of growing something on asphalt is so cool."
Mitchell said he is excited to be expanding the garden and growing food to sustain the 20 to 25 residents.
"A lot of time people in the city have space like this and will want to know if it will work," Mitchell said. "And it will."
Mitchell enjoys being able to know residents are growing the vegetables organically. He said he likes knowing where they came from and is looking forward to eating them.
