EG On-site Liaison:
In October 2015 we built an inspiration garden at Scotland Recreation Center with the staff and young people from the Scotland community. We will grow herbs and vegetables together starting next spring.
We are also excited to continue gardening with the the community development group Scotland Storm. Fred Teneyck, the group’s academic director, and six Scotland Storm students volunteered with us at our nursing home garden. We look forward to continuing to work on the garden with the Scotland Storm, as well as any other interested community members.
In 2016, the garden project was supported by a grant from the Whole Kids Foundation. We offered programming around harvesting and maintenance techniques, as well as cooking and tea making with fresh herbs.
