Farm to School at Briggs Elementary

October 7, 2019 - Posted in Making it Grow by Sean Flynn

"Making It Grow" visits Briggs Elementary School in Florence, SC to learn more about Farm at Briggs. While holding chickens, Clemson Extension Agent Amanda McNulty and teacher Jeff Murrie talk about the garden and its purpose. Amanda also talks to the students about what they have learned and what they have enjoyed about working in the garden. Mr. Murrie is also a graduate of Clemson Extension’s School Gardening for SC Educators which is a horticulture-based program designed to help SC educators grow successful school gardens to address childhood obesity and improve academic outcomes.
