“Make A Difference” Day celebrates Children’s Victory Garden Harvest


The Mount Olive Historic Cemetery Preservation Society, along with several other civic groups, marked “Make a Difference” Day with a celebration fair at the Brandon Hill Community Youth Garden. During the spring and summer, local youth were engaged in creating, planting, tending and harvesting a bountiful crop grown by their hands. Saturday was the culmination of recognition for their efforts. The harvest celebration meal consisted of the bounty of their garden, and it was plentiful.

The Youth Victory Garden is located in the Brandon Hill Community of the city, bound by Franklin, Commerce, Cedar and Duncan(?) Streets. The land consists of lots that were either donated or brought out right for this project. The young volunteers, C-MCSS students from diverse backgrounds, labored to clear the ground and prepare it for its new purpose — growing a vegetable crop to be harvested for the October celebration. Adult volunteers supervised and assisted the young people as they gained firsthand experience in what many of their forebears had done decades before and came to know an appreciation for an agrarian work ethic. The garden included corn, turnip, mustard and collard greens, spinach, tomatoes, green beans, yellow squash and even a small flower bed. «Read the rest of this article»
