Americus, GA | June 30, 2023 – A number of Phoebe Sumter leaders, including CEO Carlyle Walton, volunteered this morning at the Healthy Sumter Community Garden at Brookdale Park.  While there, they were joined by former Phoebe Sumter CEO Brandi Lunneborg and her family.  Lunneborg served as CEO of Phoebe Sumter for 7 years (2014-2021) and was a driving force in the creation of the Healthy Sumter Initiative and community gardens.

The volunteers harvested 25 pounds of cherry tomatoes, 35 pounds of green tomatoes, 15 pounds of squash and 2 watermelons (35 pounds). They also cleaned out the 6 tomato garden boxes and 2 squash garden boxes to get them ready for additional planting in the future.
