Gordon sends his heartfelt thanks to Mayor Benjamin, the City of Columbia and the City Parks and Recreation Department. Your vision and forethought in developing citywide community gardens was the catalyst that launched this program. We will continue to seek out ways to spread children's gardens throughout the city and to expose our children to gardening.
Special thanks go out to Azeez Mustafa of Asya's Organic Farm in Sumter, SC for encouraging us and for making sure that we continued to believe in ourselves! Mr. Mustafa was the first and is the largest African American owned Organic farm in the state of South Carolina.
