Gardens for Growing Community
UGA’s “GA Pollinator Census”— Summerour and Home School students are identifying and counting carpenter bees, bumblebees, and honey bees and properly recording their findings! It’s “learning by doing” and discovering “science is fun” in the garden!
The long-awaited Greenhouse is up and open for teaching and learning. Thanks to Lowes for the grant and helping get it built.
Follow Gardens for Growing Community on Facebook and visit our website to find out what’s happening in the Summerour Garden and other projects. Volunteers and visitors are always welcome! Contact Tixie Fowler (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Mitchell Wall Project
The Mitchell Wall Project has engaged 100's of students and locals who may or may not be crafty artist types BUT 100% want to join an exciting local cause. Public art is more than just fun, it's a way to connect meaningfully with the people who live near you. Local artist and Norcross Elementary Teacher Bobbie Adamczyk, is the inspiration and leader of a movement that goes far beyond art and cultural awareness. With an expected completion date of March 2018, the community-led project will turn the brown retaining wall on Mitchell Road into a canvas that celebrates community and nature and will be a public art piece intended to cultivate community awareness, strengthen relationships and develop civic pride. Keep up to date on progress by liking and following Mitchell Wall Project on Facebook.
