A group in Charlottesville is making it easier for people to get fresh fruits and vegetables.

Project Transition is plowing away grass and making space for gardens, and they're doing it all for free.

On Saturday, the group created an eight by eight foot garden at a home in Belmont. The woman that lives there says it's a project she couldn't have done on her own.

"I'm just thrilled to have Transitions come out here and help with some of this hard going work that I really can't do myself because I kind of have a bad back like a lot of gardeners do, so that's a wonderful thing that Transitions can help people with," said Cheryl Hailey, the recipient of a new garden.
