And success continues at the City of Loma Linda's community garden:

In the beginning, word spread slowly through the community and demand was so light that gardeners were allowed a second plot to grow more food if they wanted it. But as word got out and food prices rose, the garden filled up and the city developed a 30-name waiting list of would-be gardeners, said Joanne Heilman, executive assistant to the Loma Linda city manager.

"Especially this past year, the way the economy has gone, a lot of people are looking for resources," Heilman said. "This is one of them."

The garden is so successful the city has opened a second one, with at least 15 plots, on the east side of Evans Street near Loma Linda University, she said.
