The Lady's Island Garden Club was awarded the $4,000.00 SC Farm to School grant. Dawn Freeman, Social Worker, and Melinda Hagins, School Nurse,attended the SC Farm to Institution Conference in Columbia. They got all kinds of great ideas about how to integrate our garden into our classrooms!
With this grant money, they were able to build raised beds behind the school, fund field trips to local farms, highlight local produce we serve in the cafeteria, and create a mobile taste testing cart to make smoothies and other treats with our produce. The garden club meets after school during D’arts.
