On July 31, dozens of Ernst & Young volunteers working through Hands On Charlotte transformed the garden at Sterling Elementary School.
Garden Leader Ben Miles now has double the space to plant with the schoolchildren. Some of the harvest will go to Friendship Trays.
Blue Max and Vulcan donated two truckloads of pit gravel.
Wallace Farms donated composted soil.
Hands on Charlotte brought tillers and other equipment, materials and refreshments to build out the existing garden.
And during the build, bleachers were added in front of the garden, so classes can take their learning into the garden this fall.
Below are more pictures from July 31. Thanks to all the volunteers who sweated through a Saturday morning and into the afternoon to finish the task.
