Tractor Supply partners with Murray

Ridgecrest Tractor Supply Co. is partnering with Murray Middle School to offer students an enriched, hands-on learning experience through cultivation of a garden.

“The School Garden Program provides kids with an opportunity to use their hands and minds in a way that’s not typically available in a traditional classroom setting," said Sarah Crist, manager of the Ridgecrest Tractor Supply store.

“We’re hopeful that this garden will not only give students at Murray Middle School a better understanding of where their food comes from, but will also encourage them to continue exploring how the world around them works.”

The rural lifestyle retailer, which carries all of the supplies necessary to start or sustain a garden, including mulch, live plants, regular and organic seeds, and garden tools, will provide Murray Middle School with a starter kit that will assist in the establishment of the garden.
