Truman is a rural area in southwest central Minnesota centered on agriculture. The residents
feel it is important for everyone to learn to be self-sufficient and how to grow your own food. This
school garden is unique in that it is not located on the school grounds but rather about four blocks
away on the Truman Senior Living Center property.
