Seedleaf is a Lexington organization on a mission to create and maintain several community gardens around the city. Their "green" attitude has made them successful is creating 10 gardens around Lexington.

The group's Executive Director, Ryan Koch, also makes compost from food scraps that acts as natural fertilizer for the gardens. Local restaurants including Doodles and Third Street Stuff, to name a few, donate their pre-consumer food scraps to the group.

Ryan Koch says, "It's a free you-pick community garden. Anyone who volunteers to do a little work on the garden can take some fresh produce that we harvest."
