PREVENTING FOOD DESERTS - Southern Arkansas University's Agriculture Department has developed a community garden where anyone can come and grow their own produce.  The program begins its second year this spring and was an outgrowth of a plant sciences program to give students an experiential learning component to the degree program.  Extra acreage was set aside for a community outreach and has received a $25,000 WalMart foundation grant to purchase equipment to help maintain the garden. For more information, contact Dr. Jeff Miller, SAU Agriculture Department at (870)-235-4350.
