Jacksonville Community Garden is Ripe for Volunteers


It’s that time of year again! The Jacksonville Community Garden is growing ripe and volunteers are welcome. Dr. Joseph Akpan and Dr. Larry Beard of JSU's College of Education and Professional Studies joined master gardeners and volunteers from Jacksonville's First United Methodist Church and Kitty Stone Elementary School in creating a community garden that is providing healthy, fresh produce for neighbors in need.
