Inmates at the Forsyth Correctional Center, under the direction of Sgt. Tom Kennedy, tended a garden this summer and sent fresh produce to Sunnyside Ministry of the Moravian Church. Stan, an inmate, volunteered at the garden in the evenings. "I never knew how to grow a garden before I came to prison," Stan says. "I like to learn how to do things, and I feel good that the food we are growing will go to somebody who needs it. It's a way that I can give back."
Sgt. Kennedy believes they delivered about 3,000 lbs. of garden-fresh produce from the garden to Sunnyside this summer. The garden included tomatoes, squash, zucchini, corn, red onions, cucumbers, and okra.
