ESMM York County is part of the Educational Community Garden Pilot Project which was unveiled to the public on February 19th. The garden is located at 114 Ebenezer Avenue behind Two Men and a Truck (across Oakland Ave. from the Varsity Restaurant).
Read about our successful day in The Herald:
With a few swipes of a hand shovel, 6-year-old Emmanuel Anderson dug a hole and gently placed a lettuce plant into the soil. “Dad, I planted!” Emmanuel called out, glancing up at his father, Lem Anderson. It was a new experience for the father-and-son duo, but the Andersons and a few dozen rookie gardeners hope they’ve started something that will grow.
Sixty volunteers from Rock Hill community groups and Winthrop University turned out on a warm Saturday afternoon to prepare a community vegetable garden off Oakland Avenue – a pilot program that may eventually be replicated across the city.
