Volunteer J.D. Barker, left, and Max Mendez, communications, fine arts and humanities division chairman  at North Idaho College, work to build a community garden in a vacant lot near the college in Coeur d’Alene on Wednesday.

About a dozen people gathered on a Coeur d’Alene street corner Wednesday afternoon to build a raised bed that will become North Idaho College’s first community garden.

The garden project was one of several hands-on projects included in a weeklong college symposium that explores sustainability from a variety of angles, including food, waste, water and power. Other events included speeches, movies, panel discussions and displays of recycling, water conservation and electric vehicles. Read more. Alison Boggs, Spokesman Review

I love the idea of a community garden. But my idea is to have someone else do all the work while I eat the results. So far my idea hasn't caught on around here. What are your gardening plans this spring?
