Fruits and vegetables are an important part of everyone’s diet, but some people don’t have access to them.

The nursing school at SIUE planted a community garden in East St. Louis and in Brooklyn. The plan is to get fresh vegetables to people who can’t get them.

The students say it’s a great lesson for them as well because this is the kind of project a community nurse would tackle.
