Students garden to help the community

The Amelia Goddard School students gathered at Friendship Church in Amelia Saturday morning to give back to the community.

The students planted a variety of vegetables in starter pots earlier this year and Saturday, July 17 they moved their garden to raised beds on the grounds of Friendship Church.

The produce will be donated to the Grace & Mercy food pantry in Amelia. The project was designed to teach the students about community involvement, charitable giving, and helping those in need.
