Rotary Club of SML’s Giving Garden Update:

The Rotary Club of Smith Mountain Lake’s (SML) “Giving Garden” at the Booker T. Washington National Monument continues to produce vegetables for clients of Lake Christian Ministries (LCM), located in Moneta VA. LCM provides food, clothing and financial help for thousands of families each year located in the Smith Mountain Lake area of Bedford, Franklin and Pittsylvania Counties. The garden was started in the spring of 2009 as a signature project of the Rotary Club of SML and is now in its ninth year..  Initially entitled  “Tackling Hunger and Nutrition”  the Giving Garden, as it is now known, has grown to include the Franklin County Master Gardeners, local farmers, individual volunteers, members of the SML Rotary Club, the Heritage Garden at Booker T. Washington, along with many individuals. The gardens also serve as an educational tool where adults and children from local schools and organizations such as boy scouts, summer campers, etc., can learn about growing organic produce. Since inception, the Rotary Giving Garden has provided over 20,000 pounds of fruit and vegetables to clients of LCM. To date this year 1357 pounds of organic produce has been harvested  with a goal of 2,000 pounds by the end of this year’s growing season. [Read more…]
