Scott Montgomery went to school to be an accountant and that was his initial profession which took him to Africa. But Montgomery saw a need and wanted to help. He has spent nearly two years in Africa working with different communities. Over the last year he founded the non- profit organization Roots International. His work helps to improve the self- reliance and food security of some Sudanese. For locals there, sometimes traveling to the store means, encountering violence. Most people have been pretty excited, especially when they see the plant. Here it's always a joke that it's hard to give away zucchini and squash. But there everyone is pretty interested. Organizer at Floyd Fest heard about Montgomery's work and also heard that he is a fan of Groundation. The group is performing at the festival, so they have arranged a meet and greet. While home, Montgomery is picking up supplies to bring back to the farm. To find out how you can help, log on our website at wdbj7 a little bit later. Tonight Live in Floyd Frankie Jupiter wdbj7.
