Gardening organization services entire community with organically grown food


Marjorie Hess is the manager of the Gary Comer Youth Center Garden in Illinois. She spoke with a group of student reporters from Free Spirit Media about how she hopes young people continue to improve the wellbeing of the community through the garden. The garden provides local citizens, restaurants, schools, churches, and day care centers in the community with locally grown organic food.
