Farm Day at Edwards Elementary School

The Sandhills Longleaf Pine Conservation Partnership joined a host of others to help Edwards Elementary School hold their first ever "Farm Day".

Participating groups included Clemson Extension, USDA-NRCS, Carolina Eastern, Rivers and Sons Farms, Teal Farms, Mills Farm, Middle Sparrow Ranch and Sellers Produce.

Every student (over 500) at Edwards Elementary, parent helpers and teachers visted a variety of stations, including stops at the Partnership's and the Soil and Water Conservation District's tables.

Partnership Coordinator Jimmy Lisenby used burning photos (provided by Susan Griggs Photography), longleaf pine cones, posters and other items to demonstrate what the Partnership does.

In addition, each student received a longleaf seedling donated by Bodenhamer Nusery.
