New garden for all of Siouxland

SOUTH SIOUX CITY, Neb. (KTIV) -- Siouxlanders now have one more way to make their own food and save some money.

Saturday, South Sioux City, Nebraska's Mayor cut the ribbon on the Siouxland Community garden. It's open for anyone to buy a $10 or $20-dollar plot, to plant whatever you want.

If you don't have much of a green thumb, the South Sioux library is offering classes right across the street. Organizers say the garden serves several purposes.

"Feeding individuals and families. I think that's first. Exercise, getting people outside, maybe not on a day like today. But as soon as we get things harvested here in the garden, then we'll be taking it to the food bank," said garden manager Stephanie Kennedy.

There are still some plots available if you's like to get your own garden started. You can give Stephanie a call, at (402) 404-2564 if you're interested.
