OXFORD'S TEACHING GARDEN IS IN FULL GREEN

SFA's graduate assistant, Cale Nicholson, has coordinated the Teaching Garden at the Boys & Girls Club in Oxford, Mississippi, this summer. Students were involved in the garden design and planting, and throughout the summer they'll help tend the beds. On Tuesdays, they donate produce to the local food pantry. The garden project began as part of Cale's assistantship with the SFA, and ongoing activities are now funded by the Oxford Garden Club and private donations. We'll keep you posted as they learn about plants, bugs, and patience -- the three major lessons of this summer's garden.
