NEW HAMPTON-FFA students at New Hampton High School are reaching out to the community and offering garden plots as part of a community project.
FFA Advisor, Jim Russ, says with the loss of the Holy Family Garden plots located near the former St. Mary Church, the organization wanted to do something for people who like gardening, but might not have enough room on their own property.
Plots will be offered free of charge and those who sign up for a plot will be responsible for maintaining their garden. Russ says the FFA organization prides itself in community service.
Russ says plots will be determined once the snow melts. He encourages anyone interested in having their own plot to contact him at 394-2144 or contact Father Carl Schmitt at 394-2105.
