A group of Penn State DuBois students has made a contribution to help support a local community garden through a service project. Students Austin Miller, Coby Gardener, Cortney Hedlund, Kristy Hanes and Ryan Lingle gathered supplies and built a mini high tunnel that they donated to the DuBois Community Garden, located off of Liberty Boulevard. The domed, wood-framed structure, covered in clear plastic, is essentially a small green house that will protect plants from the elements and aid growth.
