Students Learn Importance of Community Garden

Groups of students from all over the world came together to take part in the Leon County Community Garden Project.

Dozens of students from elementary through college were at Georgia Street in Tallahassee Saturday to learn the importance of community gardening and healthy eating. The students will be learning how grow crops like greens, broccoli and cauliflower.

"For people who can't afford much food and stuff it lets them know they can grow their own food so they don't always have to depend on money to buy stuff," says student Tierra Moy.

The students will return at a later date to plant and harvest their crops. It will take about 4 to 6 weeks for them to grow. The food will then be donated to needy families in the area.
