Recently, our dear friend, Miss Ethel Collins, experienced a sudden need to relocate from her home of the past 11 years. Miss Ethel is an institution at the West Broad Garden and Market. Whether she’s hard at work in the garden or at the market serving up plates of her famous Soul Food with a Twist, Miss Ethel is truly the Garden’s “secret ingredient!”
W are offering you the chance to give back to Miss Ethel by sending Virtual Sweet Potato Pies to your friends and loved ones. For a minimum suggested contribution of $10 per virtual pie (or the contribution amount of your choice), you will be able to send a short film highlighting the Athens Land Trust’s community garden program and Miss Ethel’s special place in it. You will see how Miss Ethel helped prepare the sweet potato beds, planted, harvested, then turned the potatoes into her signature sweet potato pies. Miss Ethel’s own recipe will be included in your virtual gift!
