Earlier this year First Lady Michelle Obama made news when she had a garden put in on the grounds of the White House. It was a great symbol for people who advocate eating food grown close to home.
Turns out, some people in Las Cruces have a head start with the Fairlight Community Garden. The garden is part of the Mesilla Valley Community of Hope. It supplies food for the homeless soup kitchen and for low income families. For more information go to http://www.mvcommunityofhope.org/communityofhope.html#garden
