Plant it Forward - Lowcountry SC

April 23, 2018

Lowcountry USGBC/GBCI remote staff is working with Katie's Krops (www.katieskrops.com), a local nonprofit that builds gardens and donates all crops to local food pantries. The team is working with Katie's crops to help plan, fund, build a garden at The Mevers School of Excellence who has expressed interest in a garden on school property. The garden design will also incorporate learning opportunities for students at the school. The team will work with administration at the school to develop signage, curriculum, etc to augment the learning experience the garden will provide to students. The planning and design will take place in Fall/Winter 2017 with the planting occurring in Spring 2018.
