It was another Super Saturday at the Children's Coalition of Northeast Louisiana and a time to work in the community garden in downtown Monroe.

This garden plot is a joint effort between the Children's Coalition, the LSU Ag Center and the Monroe Garden Study League.

Families are encouraged to come out on the third Saturday of the month and learn about growing their own food.

"Children and people in general just aren't exposed to it and when you're not exposed to it you don't understand,” said Damon Nailer. “You don't know what's going on. But once you're exposed to it you understand it's important. You understand it's good for health, just for longevity. It's great for you."

Saturday's focus was on pollinators.

The event was also free and there will be another garden-based event coming up on August 18.
