Tumbleweeds Garden Cultivates Fun and Skills

Nestled in a quiet spot off Neff Lake Road in Brooksville is The Arc Nature Coast’s Tumbleweeds Garden. It’s a labor of love for the volunteers, staff and the clients. Up to twelve clients work at a time on a rotating basis tending the garden, which produces an abundance of fruit and vegetables. The organization received funding for the garden through a grant from the Hernando County Health Department and the University of Florida IFAS Extension Service.

Reader Laura Irizarry shares a story of husband Lou Irizarry, an over the road trucker who was making a food delivery when a family stopped him to make a delivery of their own.

The family, who he never had met, handed him a care package that included some sweet candy bars--and a sweeter note.
