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!
ORGANIC PROCESS AND LOWCOUNTRY LOCAL FIRST PARTNER TO DOCUMENT GROWING NEW FARMERS INCUBATOR PROGRAM
A documentary series following the Growing New Farmers program in Charleston, SC. This was an exciting collaboration and we appreciated being able to witness this wonderful project first-hand!
Oyster Man Mike (which was also a selection in the 2009 Charleston International Film Festival) was selected for the Southern Views series at the 2010 Echo Park Film Center in Los Angeles and for New Belgium's Film Festival Clips of Faith Tour 2011. All Oyster Man Mike wanted from this was "a walk down the red carpet, a couple of cold ones, and a chance to shoot the shit with some good folk." Now he can add another honor to the list. We recently saw Mike at an oyster roast on John's Island and we are happy to report he is doing great!
In 2009 OPP helped Rosebank Farms launch it's first Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program. In our first year we had over 100 people in the Lowcountry of South Carolina sign-up for delivery of fresh veggies. Louise Bennett and Sidi Limehouse really are the best farmers in the Lowcountry and have been feeding the people around Charleston for over 25 years. Rosebank Farms CSA is the best around; offerring pick-up and delivery in the tri-county area and also offering flowers boquets, fresh eggs, and dairy. To join the CSA visit the Rosebank Farms website.
In addition to getting personally involved in the establishment of CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) programs in the Lowcountry of South Carolina - we are bringing our media skills to the conversation. Here are videos from Rosebank Farms annual Fall Festival and a short video of renowned Floral Designer, Louise Bennett leading a Rosebank Farms Floral Arrangement Workshop.
