STEAM Garden planned for Spartanburg's Southside

STEAM Garden planned for Spartanburg's Southside

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.
