LAFAYETTE — Tucked off to the side of the Immaculate Heart of Mary Church is a fledgling community garden that will soon be home to a bountiful harvest of community-grown vegetables for the McComb-Veazey neighborhood.

It will join another garden that took shape in the nearby Freetown-Port Rico neighborhood, both done as part of a Lafayette Consolidated Government program to foster public gardens where neighborhood residents can grow their own food.
