HIGHLAND PARK, Mich. (AP) - General Motors Co. is sponsoring the expansion of a garden in the Detroit enclave of Highland Park.

Work scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday will double the size of the garden. The effort involves Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries and the nonprofit Buckets of Rain. GM is donating garden beds and bringing volunteers to help make the project happen.

Chad Audi, president and CEO of Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries says in a statement the project will “lead to a significant increase in produce of delicious fruits and fresh vegetables for the nutritional needs of not only our clients … but also members of the public who share in the harvest.

Started in the spring of 2012, the garden yields more than 25,000 pounds of fresh produce annually.
