Albany State has a new community garden

There's a new community garden at Albany State University.

Students, faculty and volunteers spent the morning building two garden plots at Albany State University's Early Learning Center.

They filled the gardens with fruits and vegetables.

They partnered with Dr. Nancy Dawson who started multiple community gardens at universities across the nation to help students understand where and how food grows.

"So what's the best way to be more healthy, learn to grow your own food,” said Dr. Nancy Dawson, Project Liaison. “Learn to eat more green vegetables. This is what we're trying to do. Trying to promote that, getting students to eat more fruits and vegetables. Anybody can grow something."

You can volunteer to work in the community garden by contacting ASU's Center of Excellence for Community Engagement.
