A Garden Grows More Than Vegetables

FLOYDS KNOBS, Ind. — Rows of tomatoes, squash, zucchini and eggplant decorate the dirt plot, as corn tassels blow in the light breeze and homemade scarecrows smile back at visitors in a small vegetable garden at Mount Saint Francis in Floyds Knobs.
But this one-acre plot isn’t just a regular garden.
It's a garden tended to by adults with developmental disabilities from Southern Indiana and Louisville. It's a garden that gives its gardeners not just vegetables, but a place to learn, laugh and grow with friends, and in this garden, no matter what the harvest brings, there are always plenty of smiles to go around.
