Woodville FBC offers community garden
Special to the Booster
WOODVILLE – If you like to prepare fresh vegetables for your family, but you don’t have time or space to plant your own garden, then grab a bucket and rush to the “Garden in the Grove”. It is located at the corner of S. Charlton and Holly Streets in Woodville, and it offers a wide selection of produce – all free to the community.
The pickings that are ready to harvest now include three varieties of greens: turnip, mustard and collard. Keep a watchful eye out for other crops that will be ready soon. Those include squash, red potatoes, snap beans, onions and garlic.
The idea for planting a community garden grew among members of the First Baptist Church (FBC) of Woodville during the recent months of inclement weather. They came up with a plan to create a community garden where people could help themselves to the various crops. They wanted a project that would show the church’s commitment to sharing God’s blessings and contributing to the community.
FBC’s Missions Ministry Team has plans on the drawing board for other improvements in The Grove. Currently, athey are developing plans for a walking trail with park benches and picnic tables. In the shadow of the Tyler County Courthouse, the trail will provide a convenient place for downtown workers to enjoy a relaxing lunch break and for young moms to visit while their children play beneath the trees.
