Sowing Seeds: Construction of Community Garden Underway from the Delta Business Journal e-newsletter

If you take a cruise down Fifth Avenue this week, you may witness the birth of a beautiful new life.

Construction of the DSU Wiley Community Garden will be in progress during Delta State University’s spring break.

The property where the garden will be located was donated to the university by the Wiley family of the late Roy Wiley, who was a professor emeritus at DSU.

The foundation was happy to run with the new Director of Facilities Management Robert Turner’s idea for a community garden as the site’s new purpose.

“It’s hard for me to think of the Delta without considering gardening because we’re out here in this sea of agriculture,” said Turner.

As the old house was demolished and cleared for the garden plot, a team for the project naturally — and rapidly — formed.
