Florence-Darlington Technical College welding students built two trellis’ for the Hartsville Community Garden located at 638 South 5th Street in Hartsville, S.C.

College employees from the Physical Plant brought and set up the trellis’ for the Hartsville Community Garden. 

Nancy Myers, Hartsville Community Leader said, “We are very appreciative of Dr. Ben Dillard (FDTC President), the employees and the welding students for their gift of time and effort.” Poplava calls the trellis’, “a welcome addition to our garden and will serve as a focal point for it.” 

Poplava said the gardeners were able to donate 1,062 lbs. of fresh produce to Interfaith Ministries in November. She said, ”The purpose of the Hartsville Community Garden is to promote healthy eating and community pride.”

Florence-Darlington Technical College offers both, academic and Continuing Education welding programs.
