The Problem

Our wish for this project would be to add more raised beds to our existing garden area. We would also like to add more perennials to our Carolina Fence Garden. Our vegetable garden is planted by our children at the Oaks Christian School. It is a tool that ties into their school lessons. The food that is grown is harvested by the children and donated to local food pantries in our community. The Carolina Fence Garden attracts our pollinators. We need a few more elements added to be able to qualify for a "Wildlife School Habitat".

Our Plan

Our project will give us more growing space to allow more children to be involved and to be able to grow even more food to bless others with! With this grant we will be able to purchase more lumber to construct the beds and more perennials to our Carolina Fence Garden. We will have teachers, parents and children volunteer to build the beds and to plant the new plants.
