The garden came to fruition through the efforts of the City of Ranson as well as from BB&T, which donated $2,200, and The Pollination Project, which provided $1,000 grant. The Pollination Project is a nonprofit organization that provides grants for environmental sustainability. “I think it is an essential component of the sustainable green movement that the City of Ranson is working to implement,” said William Gregg.
Also on hand were Judy Ashelman, BB&T employees Tammy Powell, Amber Johnson and Chrystal Hypes-Good, Victoria Lang and Michael Lang.
All food from the garden will go to the Jefferson County Community Ministries food pantry.
