Elizabethtown Tractor Supply store supports local school garden

ELIZABETHTOWN – The Elizabethtown Tractor Supply store is supporting Elizabethtown Primary School in developing a school garden that will provide students with an enriched, hands-on learning experience.

“The School Garden Program provides kids with an opportunity to use their hands and minds in a way that’s not typically available in a traditional classroom setting,” said Russell McCurry, manager of the Elizabethtown Tractor Supply store. “We’re hopeful that this garden will not only give students at Elizabethtown Primary School a better understanding of where their food comes from, but will also encourage them to continue exploring how the world around them works.”

The rural lifestyle retailer, which carries all of the supplies necessary to start or sustain a garden, including mulch, live plants, regular and organic seeds, and garden tools, will provide Elizabethtown Primary School with a starter kit that will assist in the establishment of the garden.
