Students and staff at Florida State University are teaming up with a local group to make a part of Tallahassee a little more beautiful.

FSU's College of Social Work along with the Director of the Homeless Shelter on West Tennessee Street teamed up to plant a memorial garden at the shelter.

It has been neglected for the last two years, so they decided to revitalize it.

FSU Associate Professor Dr. Tomi Gomory believes the community involvement with the homeless in Tallahassee is remarkable.

"I've been involved with homeless services for around 30 years. For me, it's an incredible pleasure to see the cooperative effort of the entire community," said Dr. Gomory.

The garden is dedicated to Dr. Wendy Crook who was involved with homeless issues for many years. She passed away several years ago because of an illness. Gomory hopes to have the shelter residents get involved with maintaining the garden with support from the College of Social Work.
