two weeks ago we shot the installation of a community garden in west louisville. the neighborhood is known as a food desert. like many on the west side, there are very few places to get "healthy food". what many of us deem as normal foods such as fruits and vegetables. to combat this problem community members and area non profits are getting together to build community gardens. this man, who struggled to speak and shook uncontrollably, i presume has parkinson's disease, but i can't be sure. what i do know is that on a day with the heat index toping triple digits, he in his long sleeve western shirt and straw flat cap worked non stop the entire time. others would take a break and he would keep his pace, slow and steady.
