The students were given a short course in using garden tools. Many new raised beds were built, filled with compost, and planted with a variety of fall vegetable seedlings. The grounds were cleared of some volunteer trees and vines around a big beautiful pine tree at the front of the garden, and a van full of fresh vegetables from Calvary, Georgia were sorted, packed and distributed by the students around the Macon neighborhood. Vegetables distributed included collards, sweet potatoes, and onions.
It was a beautiful and productive day, and a good time was had by all.
