Garden at Thornwell School for the Arts reflects community involvement

Project is co-managed by Scoutreach and the Hartsville Community Garden

Civic minded community members shared their resources to help Thornwell School for the Arts create its own garden. Nancy Myers, overseer of the non-profit Hartsville Community Garden worked closely with the TEACH Foundation to apply for a grant to start the garden.

The grant was given by Whole Foods in partnership with FoodCorps-USA of the Whole Kids Foundation. The $2,000 in funding enabled the school to creat the garden. It is being managed by Scoutreach students at Thornwell in conjunction with the Hartsville Community Garden. St. Luke Methodist Church also stepped in to provide the dirt plots the students are using to grow crops as they learn about gardening and generating food sources.
