The Mississippi State University Extension Service and the Lowndes County Master Gardeners will present a free program on Home Vegetable Gardening Thursday, March 7 at 6 p.m. at St. Paul's Episcopal Church at 318 College St., Columbus. 


"Have you always wondered if you could grow your own vegetables? Were you concerned that it would be too difficult to manage?" said Area Horticulture Agent Dr. Jeff Wilson, who will present the program. He urged those interested to attend to learn how to get started growing healthy vegetables in their own backyard.  


"We will cover the basics of vegetable production and take time to answer all your gardening questions," he added.
