SEEDS breaks ground!

SEEDS brings life to our community and warms our hearts as they hold their ground-breaking ceremony Wednesday morning. Co-founder Brenda Brodie, Betty Kenan mother to co-founder Annice Kenan, and her brother Tom Kenan were at the ceremony. Tom commented, "Brenda has been the statue of Liberty that has held the torch high."

Instead of breaking ground, the SEEDS co-founder and representatives transplanted fig branches from the large fig tree on the grounds.

"It was a dream to have this building in the beginning," Brenda stated. "And now it's an even bigger to dream. Thank you for believing."

To read more on the ground-breaking, check out the Herald-Sun article.
