TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – Those behind a Wabash Valley community garden hope to grow a sense of community while also fighting hunger.

That's the mission of the Indiana State University community garden. It officially opened for the season Saturday.

You can reserve a free plot in the garden now. Gardeners share tools and resources to help various crops grow. All that is asked of gardeners is they work in the garden at least three hours a month and donate 10% of their annual yield to a local charity.

Community gardeners donated 2,500 pounds of produce last season.
