  A chilly November 15th welcomed 30 first graders and their teachers from St. Andrews school on Wilmington Island to our farm. This is the 5th year that Farmer Jane has coordinated a tour of the garden, a picnic lunch and a gardening project for these youngsters. 

Farm hosts the first graders from St. Andrew’s school.

       This November was the fourth year the  first graders from St. Andrew’s School on Whitemarsh Island toured the Farm to gather information to bring back to their own gardening projects at school.  The children garden in raised beds at school, a part of the curriculum.  Nice!  Future Gardeners. 

A big thank you to Jane Kollman and Carol Stiles for all the work they do at the garden with the children’s programs.  They are helping to establish in many a lifelong love of gardening!
