The South Carolina Garden Toolkit was created by members of the South Carolina Farm to Institution Program. The Garden Toolkit was prepared to assist you in implementing a garden in your community. We wish you the best of luck and would love to hear your success stories!
If you are looking to start a garden at your school or child care center, you may need help encouraging others.
The first step is to create a team who can work together to plan, create, maintain and sustain the garden.
The garden committee will be most successful in starting a garden with a plan in place.
A basic understanding of key aspects of gardening will give you the necessary knowledge for executing the garden.
From watering to fertilizing, ongoing maintenance and monitoring is important for a plentiful, long-lasting garden
Once the garden has produced fresh fruits and vegetables, it is time to harvest with your students.
