Farm Bureau helps South Athens Elementary

Posted on 02/16/2017
Henderson County Farm Bureau President Sam Scott (far right) presents a check for $500 to members of the Texas Master Gardner association that maintains the garden at South Athens Elementary. Henderson County master gardeners teach students there about planting, caring for and harvesting from gardens. Because of construction at the campus, the garden was recently displaced, and dozens of large containers are being used in its place. When construction wraps in the summer, raised beds will be installed. The school will pay for materials for the beds, such as the lumber. The funds from the farm bureau will purchase the many yards of compost required. Pictured with Mr. Scott are (from left) Jacob Cole, master gardener intern, and Peter Cole, Bill Hancock and Marie Hancock, all master gardeners.
