Grow it, Know it Kitchen Garden Corps Receives Special Gift

We would like to thank David and Evelyn Knauft for proving support for our summer camp program known as Kitchen Garden Corps. Dr. David Knauft has been involved in service learning and outreach to the local school system for a number of year, first through Project Focus, and more recently through his work developing lesson plans that make use of school gardens. He as worked for many years to done to promote school garden programming in the state of Georgia, and especially the Athens area. The Grow it, Know it program relies heavily on funding from donors like the Knaufts. We are fortunate to have them as part of the Office of Service Learning family of friends, staff and volunteers. Their recent donation made the Summer 2018 program possible, allowing over 30 summer campers each week to learn about gardening and nutrition while developing practical life skills.
