If you’ve driven down

Dellwood Avenue in Frayser

and noticed a huge field of

produce taking root, you

noticed the handiwork of the

Girls Inc. of Memphis Youth

Farm.

“At the Girls Inc. Youth Farm,

the girls will reap the rewards

of growing healthy produce

while engaging in social

entrepreneurship, leadership

and civic training with local

leaders and through volunteer

activities,” according to the

organizations website.

On Nov. 5, dozens of people

turned out for the group’s fall

harvest festival.
