Pay It Forward

30 minutes. That's how long it could take someone walking in the Lierman neighborhood of Urbana to get to local produce. So one woman, along with the community, took action. And in one year, she and others are Paying It Forward to their community.
-----
Robin Albiter knows this garden. A year ago, she and others from the Leirman Neighborhood Action Community Group wanted to give their neighborhood something it didn't have: fresh fruits and vegetables.

"Many people in this neighborhood do things on foot or by bike, and are hampered by the routes to get fresh produce," Albiter said.

And though she doesn't have much of a green thumb, after talking to her, it's obvious she is the driving force behind the garden: organizing and planning it from an empty lot to a garden in the middle of the city.

"She is the glue that holds a lot of what happens here together," Leirman Neighborhood Action Community Group vice president Clyde Walker said.

If you know someone who is giving back to their community and you would like to nominate them for the Pay it Forward prize, click here. Pay It Forward: Robin Albiter
