The Green Heart Project is a community-based volunteer nonprofit organization that integrates school gardens as outdoor classrooms in an effort to teach students the virtues of hard work, respect and success, and to reiterate classroom curriculum while connecting
students and volunteers to fresh, healthy, locally-grown produce.
Meeting Street Academy is the first of our partner schools to hold their own Harvest Dinner, an end-of-year celebration of all the hard work and student learning that happens throughout the year at MSA. Taking place on Wednesday 4/17, 5:30-7pm at the GrowFood Carolina garden, students and their families, along with MSA, Green Heart and GrowFood Carolina staff, will enjoy creative, healthy bites sourced by our local restaurant partners. We are in need of 15-20 volunteers to help with set up/take down, learning stations, serving food, and providing garden tours. Please register for the event if you would like to volunteer!
• When: Wed 4/17, 4:30-7:30pm *If you're unable to get there right at 4:30pm, please just let me know. Doors are at 5:30pm, the event ends at 7pm.
• Where: GrowFood Carolina warehouse & garden: 990 Morrison Drive
o Parking: Lot located across the street at 995 Morrison, next to the Disabilities board.
