About 20 Columbia residents helped paint a mural at the intersection of Ash St. and St. Joseph on Saturday that depicted that world around them.

“It’s a celebration of Mother Earth,” said Sandra Eccles, the artist who designed the mural.

The mural was created as part of the Windsor/Ash Bike Boulevard pilot project.

“It was a neighborhood initiative, but everyone helped out,”  GetAbout Columbia employee Corri Flaker said. Flaker helped coordinate painting of the mural.

The mural depicts the community’s support of urban agriculture and buying local produce.
