Hoggard Receives Garden Grant to Build Legacy Garden

Hoggard High School has been awarded a grant from the Cape Fear Garden Club to fund a "Legacy Garden" for the seven Career & Technical Student Organizations (CTSO) sponsored at the school. The student groups will break ground on this project in the spring of 2016, creating a green space and garden area for club members to enjoy for years to come. The garden will have projects from the school’s horticulture, carpentry and apparel and textiles classes, along with continued garden maintenance by the seven clubs sharing the responsibilities. The seven CTSOs included in the project are DECA (Distributive Education Clubs of America), FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America, FCCLA (Family, Career and Community Leaders of America), FFA (Future Farmers of America), HOSA (Health Occupations Students of America), National Technical Honor Society and SkillsUSA.

Grant funding was made possible by the ticket sales from this past year’s Cape Fear Garden Club Azalea Tour. The presentation of the funds will be made later in October.
