Sheriff Daron Hall was joined by representatives from Metro Public Works, Second Harvest Food Bank, Metro Beautification, UT Ag Extension Office and others as he pruned one of the inaugural fruit trees planted in the DCSO food garden. DCSO began a gardening and horticulture component recently that complements the current culinary arts program by teaching participants to recognize the value in not only knowing how to cook, but also how to produce the product.
Metro Beautification and Metro Public Works are helping the program this year by donating fruit trees to the garden. All of the food that is produced this year will be donated to Second Harvest Food Bank, which provides food to needy children, families, and seniors throughout middle Tennessee.
