Local youths enthusiastic about gardening
Because of a grant, a group of 4-H youths acquired a green thumb this gardening season, growing nine large garden plots full of vegetables, fruits and herbs.
"When we started, our plan was to have just two plots (for the youths)," said Jennifer Pollard, county youth and outreach coordinator for ISU Extension."Since it was a new program we were going to start small and grow."
The youths, ranging in age from 9 to 13, had nine, 10 by 20 foot plots.
