Grandin Court Elementary School Garden Club
The Grandin Court Elementary School Garden Club began in April 2012 as a way to teach students valuable gardening skills through a partnership between the school and the Western Virginia Land Trust. Each week, the students learned about plants - covering subjects like weeds, soil, how plants grow, and edible plant parts. After each lesson, we had the opportunity to do "hands-on" gardening! We planted vegetables, plants, and herbs in four raised beds and one planter in the school playground. Garden Club would like to thank our generous parent volunteers and sponsors - Steve Claytor, Jesse Freedman, Judy Hensley, George Kegley, Mulch N’More, Northwest True Value, Janet Scheid, Scotts Miracle Gro, Southern Exposure Seed Exchange, St. Elizabeth's Episcopal Church and Townside Gardens.
