Loris Garden Club members contribute to the Giving Hope Nursery. Some Club members began their 2018-19 members in September with Buck Creek Foundation Board officers Lori Suggs and Dale Holt presenting a program about the Giving Hope Nursery project.
This non-profit group specializes in fostering independence in the lives of individuals with intellectual disabilities, such as autism. The previous Clardy Nursery is being revitalized into a business with the goals of providing jobs and training for those individuals growing and selling organic produce to area restaurants and the public.
Loris Garden Club members are excited to see the previous nursery site being renovated and look forward to the positive impact Giving Hope Nursery will have on the city and on the individuals receiving employment and training. Recently Loris Garden Club President David Stoudenmire and other club members met Suggs and Holt at the site to present a $500 contribution given by the Loris Garden Club members.
