The goal of Wren Elementary’s School Garden Club is to have an outdoor place where students can learn about South Carolina’s state plants and flowers, build a love of nature, and develop an awareness of local ecology and the environment. Teachers can integrate gardening into subjects such as reading, writing, math, science, social studies, and art.Each month we offer fun activities relating to planting various types of flowers, feeding the birds, keeping our school grounds free of trash, and learning about how to grow vegetables.
Our Garden Club created a “Carolina Fence Garden”. This project was created by a grant from Palmetto Pride Litter Trashes Everyone. Wren Elementary School was awarded $2,186.00 to create the garden.
