St. Francis and Leadership Greenville

Hooray! The connection has been made and Leadership Greenville has accepted the proposal by Bon Secours St. Francis to develop a community garden on the St. Francis campus for a Class of 35 project. This garden will be open to residents, community members and employees of St. Francis. The goal is to create a sustainable garden that provides a visual component, nutritious produce and a source of engagement and education for the community. Please stay tuned as the planning process is underway.

Initial planning meeting - September 18th:

This is an idea I've had for a neighborhood near the Brutontown community. I'll be anxiously following your progress. Best of luck!
