Bastrop, LA - The Bastrop Tractor Supply store is supporting Henry V. Adams Elementary in developing a school garden that will provide students with an enriched, hands-on learning experience.

"The School Garden Program provides kids with an opportunity to use their hands and minds in a way that's not typically available in a traditional classroom setting," said Rachel Gillum, manager of the Bastrop Tractor Supply store. "We're hopeful that this garden will not only give students at Henry V. Adams Elementary a better understanding of where their food comes from, but will also encourage them to continue exploring how the world around them works."

The rural lifestyle retailer, which carries all of the supplies necessary to start or sustain a garden, including mulch, live plants, regular and organic seeds, and garden tools, will provide Henry V Adams Elementary with a starter kit that will assist in the establishment of the garden.
