Congratulations St. Andrew’s School on Wilmington Is. on receiving a grant for a garden program.
St. Andrew’s School was awarded $350 in grant funding from the Georgia Farm Bureau (GFB) Foundation to be utilized for the school’s outdoor learning space & garden project. The learning space, created four years ago, continues to expand into an area where students work & play on a daily basis.
The garden area has been used to grow vegetables for the school’s lunch provider; teach students agriculture concepts; promote good nutrition & exercise. The additional dollars from the GFB Foundation will be used to expand the hands-on learning opportunities across all disciplines.
Additional activities planned for the area include a water wall, a pulley & bucket system, a stone sculpture center plus enhanced seating for classroom discussions.
