The News & Advance published a photo essay showing University of Maine students volunteering at Lynchburg Grows, an urban farm in Lynchburg, Virginia. Lynchburg Grows was founded in 2003 to help people with physical and mental disabilities enjoy the benefits of gardening, according to The News & Advance. UMaine students Hannah Burns, Hannah Welborn and Nicole Ashe were shown replanting Swiss chard in the farm’s greenhouse. The students are volunteering through the UMaine chapter of Alternative Breaks.
