Do you like fresh produce? Do you enjoy the great outdoors? Are you concerned about what chemicals might be in your food? Well the Cedar Springs FFA has just the thing for you! The FFA is sponsoring community gardens again this year. Under this program community members can utilize 20 x 20 garden plots. Residents can grow vegetables, fruit, and even flowers!
The FFA is providing tillage, seed, fertilizer, and water. FFA members have worked 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,” remarked advisor Larry Reyburn.
The Chapter is asking for a nominal fee of $20 to offset costs, however, scholarships are available for those seeking assistance. “This is not a hand out, but a hand up”, added Reyburn. “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!”
