Tate Elementary School Garden Club Invitation 002

Tate’s school garden helps students thrive

Michelle Stangline, school counselor of Tate Elementary School, is inviting parents, faculty and members of the community to participate in the Tate Elementary School Garden Club.

Stangline—an artist and licensed counselor with a doctorate degree in counseling psychology—began painting the school garden project in order to generate awareness for the garden at Tate Elementary and to encourage interest in preserving it for future generations.

The inspiration from each of the paintings with this article comes from Tate’s school garden. Stangline’s painting of the Tate School Garden are available for purchase at Hwy 53 Market in Tate; a 20% donation from each sales goes toward the Tate School Garden.

Tate Elementary School is a 100-year old school—featuring marble from the local quarries—located on Hwy 53 between Marble Hill and Jasper.

The garden fell into neglect over the years and is currently being recreated by the students, staff and the community of Tate, Georgia. The garden consists of flower gardens, rose gardens, a marble rock garden, an herb garden, several dedication gardens and a fruit tree orchard.

Hopes for the future include a vast rose garden, butterfly garden, fairy garden, sensory garden, Japanese garden and more.

The students of Tate Elementary enjoy planting, weeding, mulching, and creating art for the garden. Stangline takes the children into the garden for guidance lessons, lunches, and counseling groups. Teachers often take their students to the garden for “brain breaks”, science lessons, lunches, and more.
