Having fun helping others

TIFTON — Students with the Tift County Learning Center summer enrichment program visited the University of Georgia's Black Shank Farm Tuesday morning for the "Plant a Row for the Hungry" program. Unessee Hargett, an agriculture resource coordinator in the plant pathology department at the Coastal Plain Experiment Station, directs the PAR program. The students picked vegetables, including cucumbers, squash and green tomatoes. A group of J.T. Reddick students with the Tift County Learning Center after school program recently visited the farm in May. Local business Southeastern Federal Credit Union helps sponsor the program.
