Grow Veggies! Clean Up Day at Greer ES

 Grow Veggies for QuickStart! at Greer Elementary School

Grow Veggies! Clean Up Day at Greer Elementary was held on Sunday, March 13, 2011. Volunteers from the Piedmont Landscape Association, led by PLA Board Member, Jessica Primm,  really stepped up for QuickStart! Second grade teachers, Karen Morris, Jennifer Harnois and Kristen Wray, led by Barbara Watson, Lead PE teacher at Greer, pitched in too, as did Tessa Pehanick, QCV President and Lynda Harrill, QCV VP and QuickStart Tennis Coordinator. It was a wonderfully productive day!

   Identical twins, Trevor and Travis (hat) Payton worked all day!                   Second Grade Teacher Karen Morris jumped right in 
     Their work was easier thanks to the use of a sodcutter donated                   to help Jessica and Trevor hand dig the beds.
