Seeds of Hope from MU Extension
With the help of the University of Missouri Extension program, Marcy Webber has been living a life in recovery from her drug addiction. In an effort to pay it forward, Marcy has involved herself with fundraising efforts towards a community demonstration garden tended by participants in county rehabilitation programs. The program’s gardens are used to teach horticulture, nutrition, cooking and food preservation practices. Through this engagement, participants learn the value of teamwork and responsibility while establishing a stronger support system.
