Sowing seeds of hope

Using a borrowed pick axe, Staff Sgt. Montaski McCoy, Air Terminal Operations Center Specialist, 25th Aerial Port Squadron, 908th Airlift Wing, began breaking up the hard ground and removing the bricks and stones from the Mildred Street lot, where he converted it into a community garden. The Mildred Street lot after conversion, Montgomery, Ala., is one of three lots he has converted into gardens that grow tomatoes, broccoli, lettuce, collard greens, Brussel sprouts, squash, sweet potatoes, watermelon, and other various fruits, vegetables, and herbs.
