Community garden begins to grow next to Bedford Lofts

    With two plots of land next to his recently opened Bedford Lofts near Centertown Bedford, owner Dave McCormack wasn’t really looking for grass to mow.

    So he offered that land to be used as a community garden.
    A group of area residents took up the challenge and have created Bedford Urban Gardens—BUG, for short.
    And work has already begun to get ready.
