OUR GARDEN

In July 2015, a new garden project began to take place at The Center. Behind the main building, there is a half acre plot of land where we planted corn, beans, tomatoes, onions, sweet potatoes, and a variety of other vegetables. Our house mom, and now gardener, Mama Harriet, has taken this on as her project and spends two mornings a week working in the garden. Not only does she take so much pride in all of her work, but also uses the vegetables to prepare a daily lunch for our staff. Additionally, schools and community members utilize the garden as an example of small-scale farming opportunities in rural villages.
