Vandalia Little Community Garden has a new feature this year ­ an area designated as “The Educational Garden.”

That new area has been created through local gardeners’ creativity, commitment and desire to make the garden an attractive, pleasant and serene place to visit. It’s also their love of gardening and just plain willingness to dig in the dirt, plant, weed and do whatever else is necessary to turn out the delicious fruits and vegetables to put on kitchen and dining tables.
