Harvesting Good for the Community

Mississippi State graduate student Geoffrey Lalk of Starkville and senior Cheyenne Burchfield of Eupora, both studying horticulture in the Department of Plant and Soil Sciences, harvest lettuce from the MSU Community Garden at the Landscape Architecture complex. The harvested produce benefits a local food pantry. The garden, which hosted three academic courses in fall 2017, is a cross-campus collaboration between the College of Architecture, Art and Design; the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences; and the MSU Student Association.
