Crestview community garden presented with new power tiller

Ward said low-income families in particular can benefit from the community garden to stretch their financial resources.

"They can use SNAP funds to buy seeds and seedlings and become self-sufficient," Ward said, referring to the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.

Garden plot sponsors can help cash-strapped families with the $50 plot fee, Ward said. The family members can then work off the fee by working in the community garden.

The Main Street Crestview Association adopted the garden as a community project, Main Street member Cal Zethmayr said, and accepts donations from plot sponsors.
