Mississippi Community Gardens

It being a slow and humid day here in NYC, I was wondering...are there any 
community gardens that anyone on the list knows of in Mississippi?

I read something about a 2001 USDA grant dealing with this group: 

"Mississippi Food Network,
Jackson, Mississippi
$110,000 for two years 

Contact: John T. Alford 601-353-6656 

Bolviar and Holmes Counties in the Mississippi Delta will be served by this 
project. More than 40% of the residents live in poverty and many suffer from 
serious diet-related diseases. The project will provide income and means for 
self-reliance for low-income households by breaking down cultural barriers in the 
African American community to growing one's own food, by teaching sustainable 
agriculture practices suited to low income growers, and by increasing 
community gardens, market gardens, and a student-run seedling project. New farmers' 
markets will be set-up and linked with WIC Farmers' Market Nutrition Program. 
Community gardens in Head Start Centers will be linked with nutrition 
education. Best practices models will be evaluated for replication in other sites. " 

However, I didn't find anything else.  If you come across any of our cousins 
in that state, could you please news of them to this list and to Mr. Jim Call 
who manages our website, please?

Thanking you in advance, 

Adam Honigman,
