School and Community Garden Network

The CSWCD is excited to assist the School Health Initiative Program (SHIP) in developing a network of school and community garden leaders and resources. This network will share curricula, tools, and advice amongst the gardens and garden clubs at schools within the Williamsburg James City County school district and surrounding communities. Grant and training opportunities are also shared amongst the network.

To learn more about SHIP, check out their website here, and be sure to like them on Facebook!
