Community Gardens

Even though the growing season is coming to a close, residents throughout our listening area continue reaping the benefits of community gardens.

The projects are usually volunteer and distribute free produce to those in need. Nona Miller oversees a community garden tended by students at Lake Contrary Elementary School in St. Joseph. She says anyone that lives nearby is welcome to come and partake of the produce.
