The South Carolina Department of Education is pleased to announce the creation of the School Garden and Education Instruction Assistance Program, administered by Clemson Extension’s School Gardening for South Carolina Educators. Clemson Extension offers the School Gardening program through a partnership with the College of Charleston’s Food Systems Change Initiative with funding provided by Boeing South Carolina.

The goal of the program is to introduce children to hands-on agriculture and nutrition education as well as encourage public schools to use locally grown South Carolina produce in their school menus. The effort will support better health outcomes for children and economic opportunities for our local farmers.
