North Huron FFA gives back to the community

Courtesy photo Courtesy photo KINDE - The village of Kinde has always supported North Huron, so the school strives to give back to its community. One way the Warriors have made their community a better place is by installing a community garden. This garden consists of 16 beds and will be gradually expanded in the future. This year, students grew tomatoes, potatoes, squash and several more types of plants for a total of 850 pounds of produce grown and donated. The purpose behind the garden is to provide food for those who can’t afford fresh produce. Students tend to the garden, but because it is a community garden, community members are invited to tend to the garden as well. People who need food are welcome to take what they need, but are asked to leave the garden better than they left it. The garden is in use from May to November. If there is any leftover produce at the end of harvest season, it gets donated to a local food pantry. This not only betters the community, it also teaches students the responsibility to care for others.
