New Wallace-Dothan class combines literature, gardening

Gardening and literature seem like an unlikely pairing, but Wallace Community College instructor Steve Adkison has combined the two in a class that’s encouraging students to think about food’s impact on authors and their works.

Adkison’s “Seed to Plate To Mind” explores agricultural-related literature and has students work in a garden at the college. Adkison said the garden component of the class helps students better understand the importance of the land and farming to literature.
