Bolton High Garden Will Help Students Give Back To Mid-South Community

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) - A Mid-South high school is teaming up with a non-profit to teach students about gardening and giving back.

 

Bolton High has partnered with the Kitchen Community to create a fruit and vegetable garden. It was made possible by a $30,000 grant.

 

Wednesday morning, students got a first look at the garden and then spent time planting seeds to grow produce.

 

“It’s really significant because our goal for this project is to produce fresh fruits and vegetables and donate to our school food pantry, who then donate to needy families in poverty stricken areas in the city,” says senior Julency Myrtil.

 

She says many families in these areas don't have access to grocery stores for fruits and vegetables, and this garden is a way for them to get better nutrients into their diet.
