TMS Garden Club
TMS Garden Club's began in August of 2013. We had a Kick-off for the garden on August 24, 2013 and over 100 people showed up to help!!!!! This included Lowe's Heroes Project, who donated $2400 in materials to help us get started. Our mission is to provide fresh vegetables to the local soup kitchens. We have partnered with businesses, community groups, master gardeners, school staff, parents, volunteers and our students to create a 20,000 square foot garden. We have 14 teachers with a worm bin in their room creating worm castings for use in the garden. Everybody donating their time and energy to help our community. The TMS Garden Club has donated tomatoes,lettuce, egg plant, cucumbers, squash, zucchini, beets, collard, brussel sprouts,radishes, and cabbage this far. The total weight of the vegetables donated is over 6000 pounds, as of 1/4/13, THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING. Our hope is to continue to maintain and sustain this garden for future years. We are starting our second planting now and hope to have a total of 14,000 pounds (7 ton) of vegetables donated to the soup kitchen for the two school years. The local soup kitchens serve 800 meals per day and are thankful for TMS Garden Club's contribution. We plan to continue this project, when school is not in session (summer), to provide foor to the less fortunate.
KGI is a nonprofit community of over 30,000 people who are growing some of our own food and helping others to do the same.
