Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle got his hands dirty today outside of City Hall.

He worked with Operation Green Team to plant a vegetable garden between the Administrative Building and the Annex Building.

The produce grown in the garden will be given to the Food Bank of North Alabama for distribution to lower income neighborhoods in the Huntsville area.

Mayor Battle says he hopes the garden at City Hall will inspire other communities and businesses to grow produce locally.
