"Okra, tomatoes, cucumber, squash, basil."
These are just a few of Linda McKnight's favorite things.
She grows them in the plot of land she bought in Milledgeville's community garden off Harrisburg Road for ten dollars a year.
Those who garden here say they're reaping what they sow.
"It makes us happy to know hey, this came from the garden," Barbara Vann said. "When you see the price of collards, which are a staple around here, it'll make you want to plant your own!"
The garden was created through a grant awarded to Georgia College's Center for Health and Social Issues (CHSI).
The original $500,000 grant was funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation over a four-year period, beginning in 2010.
Dr. Jim Lidstone, director of CHSI, says he was "nervous" since that funding was set to expire on December 15.
