Dedicated students from the Columbia College Science Club have been hard at work in the club’s garden, despite the heat, harvesting crops to donate to the Food Bank for Central and Northeast Missouri.
Zoe Davis, the president of the Science Club, helped revitalize the club in 2022 to share her passion for gardening and give back to her community.
“I’ve always grown up having a garden at my house. My dad taught me to garden when I was little, so I’ve always loved having fresh produce available, just kind of like having grocery shopping in your own yard. So, I was like, ‘I want to take the skills that I learned at my house and bring it to Columbia College,’” said Davis.
The first donation consisted of a small crop of tomatoes and peppers, but this year, the garden has much more to offer.
