Either This Is a Mistake, or TSU's Community Garden is HUGE

Posted By on Wed, Jun 29, 2011 at 6:00 AM

In a story on the WTVF NewsChannel 5 website about TSU's awesome community garden program, there was this eyebrow-raising paragraph:

"I grew up on the farm, so I know a little bit about it, but I love to get my hands in the dirt," said North Nashville resident Dolores Wright. The fruits of her labor are plentiful as she picks through the produce. But, she wouldn't have the handful of red tomatoes or rows of homegrown vegetables without her 30-acre plot on Tennessee State University's new Community Garden off 28th Avenue.

Thinking it might be a typo, I decided to watch the video clip of the report. No, it wasn't a typo: Reporter Kim Gebbia clearly says, "... without her 30-acre plot ... ."

Is Gebbia right? Is Wright's plot in the garden really 30 acres?!

My god! How big must the whole garden be?
