SRVS/Tipton County Enhanced Learning Center partnered with Oleo Acres’ Tim Ammons to build a vegetable garden at the center. SRVS, a United Way agency, offers comprehensive support to people with disabilities. 

The garden will be used to teach horticultural classes to people with disabilities and provide an opportunity to grow vegetables and herbs to be sold at the farmer’s market. 

The center’s members and families participated in a dig and a horticultural demonstration taught by Ammons. Donations from Home Depot in Covington, Tractor Supply and the support of the city of Stanton have made the garden possible.
