AKA unveils new community garden

JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – Two chapters of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated are working with the Fresh Start Ministry Church for a new garden on Manhattan Road.

Members of AKA hope this garden can teach families and children how they can take care of themselves.

“This garden was made possible thanks to a grant from the USDA,” said Rose Franklin of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated.

People who help with the garden will be able to take home the fresh fruit and vegetables grown there.
