The Friendship Court Community broke ground Thursday on an urban garden in their neighborhood.

The city garden will be located near the corner of 6th Street, SE and Monticello Avenue. It was made possible in part to the Quality Community Council, as well as a grant from the Blue Moon Fund.

Thursday's event featured live music and food. Organizers say they will have the fertilizer delivered next week, and are planning a harvest celebration this fall.
