    Raleigh, N.C.-based State Employees' CU is working with local school students and the farming community in Ahoskie, N.C., for a community gardening project. In mid-April, SECU's Ahoskie branch staff and advisory board  will oversee development of a 1.5-acre field adjacent to the branch. The garden will offer outdoor experience through local elementary school field trips, providing teachers with interactive, hands-on tools to meet curriculum objectives in social studies, math and geography.  Shown are Ahoksi branch staff, standing alongside the tractor manned by SECU Senior Vice President James Eure. Local farmers will help students learn how to plant, maintain and harvest fresh produce including watermelon, corn and cucumbers. Eure came up with the community garden concept after attending conferences on the state's farming industry. (Photo provided by State Employees' CU) …
