SeamonWhiteside & Green Heart Project Complete First of Three Urban Gardens

SIES Garden Build

SeamonWhiteside and Green Heart Project are excited to announce the completion of their first urban garden together at Sullivan’s Island Elementary. Since announcing their partnership earlier this year, SeamonWhiteside, and local nonprofit, Green Heart, have solidified plans to design and construct urban gardens at three local area schools. On September 21st, the first of those gardens will be opened for children attending Sullivan’s Island Elementary to enjoy.

“We can’t be more thrilled with how this project turned out, and look forward to seeing it in action with the students of Sullivan’s Island Elementary ” said Drew Harrison, the Executive Director of Green Heart Project. “The partnerships with Sullivan’s Island Elementary School, Charleston County School District and SeamonWhiteside have made our mission of connecting students to healthy food through school gardens possible. It truly was a community effort, and we are ready to get started on our next project.”

Green Heart will begin installation on the newest garden beds at Meeting Street Elementary @Brentwood on September 19th. SeamonWhiteside has assisted through the entire garden design process including an architectural consultation, charette, construction drawings and budgeting.

“Our team is looking forward to working side-by-side with Green Heart to break ground on the second urban garden,” said Russ Seamon, the Director of Projects at SeamonWhiteside. “This partnership gives us the opportunity to give back to our community by doing what we love – building meaningful spaces for people.”

Through the hands-on learning experience of growing an urban garden, the farm-to-school programs put on by Green Heart teach students the value of healthy, local food while reiterating classroom curriculum, teamwork, respect and entrepreneurship. The school gardens are maintained through class sessions and weekly volunteer hours. From seed to harvest, students participate in every aspect of the agricultural project.

Green Heart envisions sustainable gardens flourishing across Charleston County, and there are plans for a third garden to be constructed before the end of the 2015-2016 school year.

Community members are invited to the ribbon cutting of the Sullivan’s Island Elementary garden, 2015 Mike Perkis Place, Sullivan’s Island, SC 29482, on September 18th at 2:45pm. The unveiling of the plan for Meeting Street Elementary’s urban garden will take place on September 22nd at 3:30pm at 2685 Leeds Avenue, North Charleston, SC 29405.
