The White County 4-H GIFT Garden was buzzing Tuesday morning with kids harvesting, pulling weeds, and learning about composting from U of I summer intern Annamae Dziallo. While at the garden, the kids had a visitor from Cox’s Hardware in Crossville. Kenny May, representing the store, came and donated $2,100.00 worth of seeds for us to use in the coming year. White County 4-H and Amy McCarty, Extension Program Coordinator, would like to thank Kenny and Brad Cox for the wonderful donation.
