Mt. Zion Church is starting an urban gardening project and will use the crops to feed families in need.
The first project will be to make soup from the homegrown vegetables and feed the community.
"They’re very good, they’re hard working, they’re on time, they get their stuff done," said Amanda Sefcik of Mt. Zion Church. "Usually they’re so good we have to send them home early because we run out of work to give them!"
"The job means a lot to me, it gives me responsibility and shows me that I have an opportunity that a lot of other kids don’t have," said Jordan.
