Burch Elementary starts garden with help of community partners


Burch Elementary School is working with its community partners to create a school garden.

Hopewell United Methodist Church in Tyrone donated gardening books for the school’s Media Center. Reference books, how-to books for children and adults, and picture books were among the donated Gardening Library selections.

Members of the congregation, along with their pastor, volunteered in the Media Center at Burch to help organize the new book collection.

Behind the school building, students can see the progress on the new garden area as faculty, staff, students, parents, and community partners from Hopewell United Methodist Church all work under the guidance of a Master Gardener to create Burch’s garden.
