  • Greenville-Spartanburg-Anderson, SC (1888PressRelease) December 23, 2010 - The garden boxes donated by Addison Homes gave kids the opportunity to develop their building skills by putting the container together and also express their creative skills by painting the container. The children built two wooden garden box planters that will be used to grow vegetables, herbs and flowers at The Children's Museum. A garden box is an easy way to jump-start a child's love of gardening and encourage healthy eating habits.

    "The garden boxes provide The Children's Museum of the Upstate the infrastructure to offer a range of gardening programs for Museum guests and the Junior Master Gardeners to include soil science, pest management, planting, ecology, landscape design, and much more. Thank you Addison Homes for donating a great educational tool." - Marnie Record, The Children's Museum of the Upstate.

    Visitors at the Museum are able to participate in educational sessions and demonstration programs and see the gardening programs in action.
