COMING SOON TO BROADWAY: Tito’s Block to Block community garden and farm program, which started in 2019 with gardens in three cities and has expanded to 35+ cities nationwide. Arkansas Hunger Relief Alliance/Tito's

Tomorrow, an empty lot on Broadway Street in Little Rock next to Trinity Episcopal Cathedral will be transformed into a community garden, which the Arkansas Hunger Relief Alliance hopes will be both a food source for the city as well as a gathering place.

It’s part of a program called “Block to Block” from “Love, Tito’s,” the philanthropic arm of the Texas-based vodka purveyor, whose mission includes “lending a hand to communities affected by natural disasters, spreading joy to those who need a little more, protecting the environment we all share, and developing programs to better serve our communities.”

The garden won’t be seeded until next year, but organizers are looking for volunteers to help out Friday, Oct. 27 with the construction phase — installing landscaping fabric, building raised beds, spreading gravel, hooking up irrigation and soaker hoses, filling beds with compost, building a perimeter fence and erecting garden gates.
