The Payton CityFarm Learning Garden, located in back of the building on Museum grounds, is a project of the Museum’s education department. The produce grown here is used to help educate students about nutrition and sustainability; the garden also serve as a hub for ingredients featured in our café‘s menus. The Payton CityFarm Learning Garden is dedicated in memory of Alyne Payton by Merry Walker Dougherty and Katie Walker McBrayer with the hope that it might offer the nourishment for body and soul that its honoree so lovingly provided. It is also funded in part by a grant from Whole Kids Foundation, and executed in collaboration with The Partnership for a Healthy Mississippi.
