I want to share with the community how much the Victory Garden (community garden) has meant to our food bank clients. Having fresh vegetables added to their bags of food allows the households to have more nutritious meals.
The clients were very appreciative of the fresh lettuce, cabbage, cucumbers, tomatoes, squash, corn, green beans, okra, peas and peppers. One gentleman was so pleased to receive the peppers he said, “I’ve been wanting some hot peppers!’ One lady said, “I love okra!” and another said “This is awesome!”
One hundred sixty-seven households have received some type of fresh vegetables this season.
I want to say thank you to everyone involved with making the Victory Garden possible.
Please keep the garden going. It’s such a great asset to our community.
Agreed. The hemp could really alleviate some of the ailments and suffering of our seniors. So, they can benefit from growing the hemp, then derive the medical benefits of the harvest. Win-win. And put some dealers out of business by growing their own healthy, natural hemp.
I am so glad to hear you are doing this. I've wanted to put together a community garden for over a year now. I thought South Jackson Elementary school would have been a good place for one because they can get kids and parents involved in it. But when I suggested the idea it didn't go over very well.
Victory Gardens are the answer and we should all be doing it.
This makes me very happy. If there is anything I can do to help please let me know.
Vicki, so glad to hear your enthusiasm! However, how is anyone supposed to contact you? You didn't leave any contact information. Besides, you need to contact them, not the other way around. Keep trying with the school; folks can be really short-sighted about so many things.
