Plots number 23 and 27 of the East Liverpool Health Department’s Community Garden have been claimed by the Kent State East Liverpool Campus – with plants already taking root.

The Environmental Club on the East Liverpool Campus is sponsoring the two raised garden boxes which contain tomatoes, zucchini, jalepeno peppers, red and orange bell peppers and a few flowers. Once harvested, the vegetables will be donated to a local food pantry. The club also planted flowers to decorate the gazebo-like structure in the garden.

Enjolie waters the plants

Working on the project most recently were Megan Rodgers, advisor for the Environmental Club and lab assistant for the biology department, and her daughter, Enjolie; Dr. Lydia Rose, assistant professor of sociology; and Candy Solterbeck, administrative assistant.
