Long rows of raised beds are ready for planting at Mountain View College.

The college won a $128,824 grant from Wells Fargo to build a community garden that will serve as a learning laboratory as well as a growing space for the college’s neighbors.

Mountain View’s Slow Food Community Garden will host community workshops on how to grow food, cooking, nutrition, composting and rainwater harvesting, among other topics.

The college will make 24 of its beds available to the community for $50 a year. They will be available for lease starting Monday, Aug. 25.

The rest of the beds will be used as part of classes and for faculty.
