Volunteers and residents team up for community garden at Franklin Estates

 

Franklin Estates Community Garden

 

Volunteers and Franklin Estates Mobile Home Park residents gathered June 19 for a cookout celebration and ribbon cutting in honor of the community's new garden. The garden, built by college students participating in UWWC's Alternative Spring Break in March, was made possible by a grant from the Tennessee Recreation and Parks Association and funds from Volunteer Tennessee. Students worked on design, layout and tilling of the garden and taught community families about the garden, how to preserve fresh foods, ways to cook with fresh herbs, and more. During the celebration, residents had the opportunity to pick some of their yield from the crops, bringing home grocery bags of freshly grown squash, onions, potatoes, and more.
