Summer Help 2018

Another school year is done and yet the garden is still in full swing. What to do with all these beautiful veggies and flowers? They could go home with you! Please sign up for a time to come to our garden to do some weeding, watering, and harvesting!

Anything that is ready to pick is yours to take. I will be posting harvesting and weeding tutorials soon, which I will link to here.

P.S. Watermelon does not ripen off the vine! Do not pick it before it is ready. Here’s how you know when to pick watermelon.

We need YOU!

The gardens here at SGE are supported by a wide range of people and groups in the community, financially and personally. We would love to add YOU to that list!

Here are a few of our supporters


Charlotte Mecklenburg Food Policy Council

If you would like to donate, please visit our PTA donation page. In the ‘Write a note’ section, write “Garden program,” so we know that it is intended for use in the school gardens.


If you or your group would like to volunteer in our gardens, please send our garden coordinator, Nicole Miller, an email at We regularly host garden beautification days and are always appreciative of the help!
