Garden Produces 80 Pounds for Emmaus Food Pantry

Logansport, Ind. – Students participating in the Incite Garden Program (IGP) at the Logansport Juvenile Correctional Facility have been working very hard tending the garden to ensure a robust harvest over the summer months. To foster a sense of ownership each student had a section of the garden to call their own and were able to mark their garden section with a creative a sign to illustrate the pride of ownership.

Skills each student learns aren't limited to how to plant and care and tend the garden.  They also learn the importance of team work, healthy competition and working together to the benefit of people they don’t even know.

As a result of their efforts, more than 80 pounds of produce was donated to the Emmaus Mission Center - Food Pantry in Logansport, IN.  "It is great to see these students working together and the positive impact on their community," said Warden Eric Courtney. “It means something to each of them personally to know their efforts are helping to feed less fortunate people.”
