When the garden was vandalized by students, the science teacher had the idea to reach out to Paint Love to see if we could involve the students in making the garden a place every student was proud of and felt ownership over. In partnership with The Creatives Project, artist Meta Gary is working with almost every class at Austell to create signage, a mural, a path, outside chalkboards for classes, and decorated benches for the learning garden. This event will be the final students/parent/community volunteer day as well a re-opening celebration for the learning garden!

CURRENT NEEDS:

  • Volunteers to help out- especially if you are comfortable with tools! Although not necessary. We just really need extra hands to make this work!! 

THE PROJECT: 

 Austell Elementary recently got a grant to create a learning garden outside their school. When the garden was vandalized by students, the science teacher had the idea to reach out to Paint Love to see if we could involve every class in making art for the garden a place every student was proud of and felt ownership over. Artist Meta Gary is working with every class at Austell to create signage, a mural, a path, outside chalkboards for classes, and decorated benches for the learning garden. 

This is a community work day to help install plywood planks the kids have painted a mural on to go on a brick wall outside the school, near the garden. We need all the helping hands we can get!! Kids and their parents will be helping too.
