The Vernon College Biology Club planted a beautiful, organic garden just in time for Earth Day to help feed people in need. They say it’s all part of giving back to the community.
The shallots and potatoes are coming up nicely and should be ready to harvest soon. Club members worked long and hard on their garden and it is a labor a love.
“The teamwork and the effort that everyone put into it was great. Everybody was so helpful. When we first got the white pallets they weren't white. We all painted the pallets together. It was fun getting dirty and planning and knowing that eventually this garden will help a lot of people.”
The food service director of Faith Refuge and Faith Mission, Michelle Ferguson, says many of the women and children at the shelter are lacking in proper nutrition. She says she is ecstatic about the fresh produce, calling it a blessing.
