Venture Free Children’s Center is creating and expanding our school garden at Kings Mountain Elementary school. We are just in the beginning stages of designing our future garden and outdoor classroom areas (imagine giant flower teepees!) The children are working on researching which plants would best thrive in the shade, on the Mountain and in our growth zone (9), in addition to learning how to properly landscape the area, care for and maintain their garden.
They will then make a landscaping design of where plants will be placed based on plant height, if they require shade, how much maintenance, or if plants would be best suited in a greenhouse. They are also looking at plants to bring more butterflies and dragonflies to our school!
Please stay tuned as donors, materials and supplies come in so we can improve our garden! We’ll keep updating the page as the kids continue the landscaping design process 🙂
