Shreveport community garden harvest on display

Louisianacommunitygardens.wordpress.com

About 25 teenagers from the Stoner Hill neighborhood of Shreveport will show off their summer vegetable garden harvest today with a food tasting event at Valencia Community Center. LSU AgCenter extension agent Grace Peterson created a program called the Food Initiative Taskforce for Kids. Peterson's 10-week curriculum shows how to create a healthy food system from seed to harvest. She'll present her work at a food access summit  in Baton Rouge later this year.
