Green Heart grows food with students on school grounds

Organic Process is happy to be working with the Green Heart project and documenting their efforts as they work hard to grow food on school grounds and teach students math, science, agriculture, environmental sustainability, and community stewardship, through hard work and working together.

The Green Heart Project pairs volunteers from the Charleston Area with students in an effort to teach the knowledge needed to build a sustainable future while instilling the virtues of hard work and success through building an urban garden together. 

Green Heart's first school garden is located at Julian Mitchell Elementary School in downtown Charleston. The project provides the students, teachers and community with a rich, urban agricultural experience, resource and teaching tool and not to mention tons of fresh produce!
