The Pershing Garden began nearly 15 years ago with the vision, labor and passion of Mr. Charles Coursey, Sr., who came to Pershing Middle School as a history teacher in 1999. A retired farmer from Florida, he offered to teach gardening, initially as a club, then as a formal elective as gardening grew in popularity. The abundant fresh veggies were often prepared for students to eat and sell in the popular farmer’s market. Sadly, Mr. Coursey succumbed to his battle with cancer in October 2018.
