A community garden network in central Louisiana, the Good Food Project, received a $75,000 grant this week from the Central Louisiana Community Foundation. It will allow the sustainable gardening nonprofit to start 10 additional community gardens and help feed more than 5,200 people through the expansion during the year, according to Food Bank of Central Louisiana executive director Jayne Wright-Velez.

The director of the Good Food Project in Alexandria, Lori Garton, will lead a workshop on edible weeds. It's set for Saturday, Aug. 19, at 9 a.m., at the Food Bank of Central Louisiana.
