Smart Start gets grant for garden

-A A +A

Smart Start of Brunswick County received a $2,500 grant donation from the St. James Service Club for its project, Just Watch It Grow! It will teach children to grow, taste and learn to enjoy a variety of vegetables and promote outdoor physical activity through planting pizza gardens.
Childcare teachers will help children through all phases from garden design, vegetable selection and soil preparation to caring for their garden. Grant funds will purchase materials for garden beds, soil and plants. The Smart Start staff will work with the childcare center volunteers and staff throughout the project.
