“With the tractor and mower, we will be able to maintain the grounds and make them a showplace,” said Miller. “I want to get the word out to the community that using these garden beds is a fun thing to do and meet new people, we can help with gardening tips, and it’s free.”

The community garden area also hosts other agriculture educational areas with an orchard, vineyard, blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, a garden, and forage and turfgrass plots. The teaching area and raised beds share a compost shed. Miller feels that this is an excellent way for the campus and community to learn about and experience agriculture. He is also excited about the campus and community interaction.

“We are committed to fostering closer ties to the Magnolia and Columbia communities and this is another way we hope to build relationships with the people of our region,” said Dr. Trey Berry, who was one of the first to reserve a garden bed for he and his family. “This also is a program that will bring Columbia County families to our campus for fun and educational experiences throughout the spring and summer months.”
