The Indian River County Farm Bureau worked with local suppliers to get material and supplies donated for 35 “self-watering container gardens” for Ms. Murray’s Treasure Coast Elementary after-school gardening club. Ms. Murray has received several Florida Farm Bureau Ag in the Classroom mini-grant scholarships in past years for the gardening club. Five gallon buckets, potting soil, fertilizer, lime and countless volunteer hours were donated in preparing the project.
