BEVERLY — With the help of a grant from Dominion Energy, students at Beverly Elementary School have received a unique opportunity to learn about soil and gardening.
Kindergarten and fifth-grade students worked together Wednesday to plant pumpkins and zinnia flowers, and learn about soil at a community garden located on Collett Street in Beverly.
“Dominion Energy gave a donation to help purchase the supplies needed to start this project,”Samantha Norris, communication specials for Dominion Energy, said. “This donation was part of a larger initiative to give $75,000 to groups promoting environmental stewardship and education in the state of West Virginia, so we felt that this, as you are seeing today, was a great way to connect youth with nature.”
