Students at Jones County Pre-K will have a unique and ongoing gardening experience, thanks to the effort of a group of volunteers who came together to help.

Pre-K Director Keisha Pitts said the garden began with an idea of Pre-K teachers who attended Bright From the Start training last year. The topic of the session was Go Outside and Play and Pitts said the teachers came back with a lot of ideas of extending learning outside the classroom.

“At the end of last year I asked them what would they like for me to purchase for Pre-K if I had some extra money left over in the budget. They said they would like to have a garden,” she said.

The director said she told the teachers that she would purchase the beds and maybe they could get some parent volunteers to help with the startup of the garden.

Pitts purchased two garden beds for vegetables and kid-friendly garden tools.
