BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - By Jessica Bowman - email

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Coastal Women for Change presented its new garden Saturday at John Henry Beck Park in Biloxi.

Okra, beans and much more are planted in the garden for everyone to enjoy. The vegetables are free. All you have to do is go and pick it yourself.

Other booths were set up during the event including a school supply giveaway. Organizers said this is their way of reaching out to the community. Sharon Hanshaw is with the Coast Women For Change.

"We're having a fun day for our community, so we invited all community activists and local organizations to bring their resources out and share with the community," Hanshaw said.

The group sponsors events about every two months in the community.
