Julie Nofsinger works in the Dilworth community garden Sunday morning July 5, 2015. The unused piece of land at 1300 Ordermore Ave. was just a patch of weeds -- an eyesore. Julie Nofsinger pitched the idea to Duke to lease her group the land (for basically nothing) and to let her create a community garden.
