Video: Groundbreaking at Truman Community Garden in Federal Way

The Federal Way Senior Center Community Garden, which opened in May 2009, has fueled a small movement to spread gardens across the city. The volunteer-driven senior center garden has supplied more than 10,000 pounds of produce to feed local residents and stock food pantries. The garden also sets an example for forging connections that raise Federal Way's quality of life.

On Sept. 22, a groundbreaking ceremony at Truman High School welcomed the city's second community garden. Modeled after the senior center garden, the Truman garden will occupy a 10,000-square-foot parcel near Interstate 5 at South 317th Street.

The attached video was produced by Truman High School.
