WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - If your thumb isn't as green as you'd like it to be, or green at all, several local organizations will try to help this week.
On Wednesday afternoon from 1-4 p.m., the Urban Oasis Community Garden Kickoff will be held at Maides Park at 1101 Manly Avenue.
Participants can learn gardening techniques at the event free of charge.
As part of a neighborhood revitalization project in 2017, Cape Fear Habitat for Humanity installed a community garden at Maides Park. In addition to educating residents about growing their own food, the project was also designed to provide neighborhood beautification.
