Cobden Mural Project

Length: 4:33

You may not see it at first glance on a casual drive through Cobden, but if you know where to look, there's a community garden and mural in town that has become a point of pride for the migrant population in this small community. At the garden, volunteers tend to the plants – and they also reap the benefits of fresh vegetables. A guest artist worked with community leaders in Cobden to transform a blank wall at the back of a building into something that reflects the history and pride of the residents of Cobden. InFocus talks with Martha Furgeson about the community garden and the colorful mural.
