Podcast: STEAM Garden planned for Spartanburg's Southside

Wednesday, November 1

Kick-off event for educational community garden planned for Friday, Nov. 3 at 3 p.m.


An innovative new kind of community garden is coming to Spartanburg's Southside, starting with a kick-off event to be held this Friday, Nov. 3, 3 p.m.–6 p.m. Daniel Zongrone was awarded the 2017 ArtsXcelerator Grant from the Chapman Cultural Center to install the edible art garden, which will be located on the corner of S Church Street and Marion Avenue


Dubbed a STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) garden, the project will feature educational components in partnership with Spartanburg School District 7 and a unique gazebo design that will collect rainwater via a slanted roof, diverting the water through a pipe inside a large metal spring into a reservoir that will be used to water the garden. 


Today on the podcast, we're talking with Zongrone and Nancy Stewart, who will oversee the project's education component. Listen below for more.
