This Title VI garden was built using galvanized steel stock tanks graded for garden use.  The soil was purchased from a local greenhouse, and they included donated tomato plants and discounted the squash and pepper plants. This creative, budget-friendly option proves that any Title VI program can build their own garden to increase the health and happiness of their elders.
