It is once again that time of year! The Cedar Springs FFA is sponsoring its annual community gardens again this year. Under this program community members can utilize a 20 x 20 garden plot. Residents can grow vegetables, fruit, and even flowers.
Local advisor Mr. Larry Reyburn reports, “Thanks to our many sponsors, the FFA is able to provide tillage, seed, fertilizer, and water.” FFA members are working after school and several Agriscience classes have been involved in the work and planning of this community service project. “This not only allows our members to learn by doing, but they also have a hand in a great community service project,” added Reyburn.
The Chapter his asking for a nominal fee of $20 to offset costs, however, scholarships are available for those seeking assistance. “For those who like the outdoors and wholesome food, this may be the ticket to a fun and productive summer,” Reyburn added. “It is our hope that we can especially offer this program to area residents that would like to produce their own food with their own efforts!”
The Chapter would like to thank Gleaner Insurance Company for sponsoring the scholarships.
