A new initiative by the Food Literacy Projectcalled Truck Farm Louisville was launched under sunny skies in the parking lot of Whole Foods, 4944 Shelbyville Road, on Wednesday afternoon. The mobile garden planted in the bed of a Chevy pick-upwas unveiled with a green-ribbon cutting and a proclamation from Mayor Greg Fischer's Office.

Members of theYouth Community Agriculture Program proudly explained how they built the truck garden as a summer project and fielded questions from curious onlookers.
