Community garden service project

The Longwood University Multicultural Affairs and social work professors and students used the Virginia Cooperative Extension Family Nutrition Community Garden on the corner of Blanton Virginia Street as their service project.

Working in the garden, students were able to engage with their community in a positive, nurturing way. They gave back to the community they live in. “This is good for the students, they need to see the whole community not just student life,” Quincy Goodine said.

Dr. Erica Meredith Brown and others organized the event.
