“It was fun and we also learned a lot,” echoed fellow fifth-grader Case Johnson.

John Rich, a volunteer with the program for 10 years, served up greens and sweet potato casserole to the hungry students at the luncheon.

“It’s all about getting kids to eat something other than hamburgers,” Rich said.

County Commissioner Ward McDaniel was also on-site for the festivities. A gardener himself, he applauded Carter for his time and dedication to the program.

“Roy does a marvelous job with the kids,” he said.

Carter added, “It’s the only gardening program you’ll find in North Florida. It’s a pleasure to be a part of it.”
