Tractor Supply supports charter school garden

The Ridgecrest Tractor Supply store is supporting Ridgecrest Charter School in developing a garden to provide students with a hands-on learning experience.

“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 Ridgecrest Charter 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 the school with a starter kit that will assist in establishment of the garden.
