Garden party

Four Seasons Community Garden gets ready for spring planting season

(Continued)

TAZEWELL — lll

So what will people plant?

He said everybody plants tomatoes, but then personal preference takes over.

“Some will plant whole gardens full of sweet potatoes and green beans,” he said.

He believes more people are aware of the food industry and want to eat local produce.

“They want to grow healthy food for themselves,” he said.

A retired U. S. Post Office employee, Bunch’s garden is full of asparagus, garlic, potatoes, beets, lettuce, onions, sweet corn, green beans and more. And just like Parham, he was forced into the garden as a child.

“But as I grew up, I realized they had taught me something valuable,” he said.

Lessons he hopes to share with the community. For more information, call 276-971-0964 or e-mail bilbunch@gmail.com.  ꆱ
