What a joke "community garden"? you might get one bowl of salad from the whole garden. I wondered way the Telegram didn't give the location of this so-called "community garden" see it for your self at the corner of Lexington and eastern behind the house of Susan Perry Cole. These nonprofits are nothing but a bunch of friends and circle of crooks, They all have their hands in the poor people pot robbing them blind, if all these nonprofits exist years ago and the problems they "address" are worst now then how will they get better if they all joined forces? They need to be replaced and they will. THE TIME OF EXPLOITING THE POOR IS OVER, THEIR HELP IS ON THE WAY. I AM SICK AND TRIED OF THESE EDUCATED BLACKS AND THE FAITH BASE COMMUNITY (WHITE AND BLACK) RUNNING THESE NOPROFITS ROBBING POOR BLACK CHILDREN OF THEIR CHILDHOOD AND THE PURSUIT OF THE AMERICAN DREAM.
