Gulfport community garden gives back

Celebrating its one year anniversary, the 34th Street Wholistic Community Garden continues to grow in size.

The community garden sits off 34th Street and 8th Avenue in Gulfport and is about 75 percent full after one year of business. The garden houses different fruits and vegetables ranging from squash to eggplants to watermelons.

Those who grow at the site are able to do what they want with their fresh produce, including sell it or, in some cases, donate it to homeless shelters.

James Franklin, the executive director of the community, tells News 25 while things are moving along they could still use donations and volunteers. “One of the key things is we’re still seeking community support. Whether you volunteer or donate, I mean, all of those things, we’re still interested in.”

The cost to join the community is $25 a year. If you are interested in volunteering or donating you can stop by the location on 34th Street on Saturdays from 8 a.m. until noon or visit their Facebook page.
