There are some new raised beds at the Deep Roots Community Garden in Mocksville.

There are new hoes, rakes and shovels, new buckets and other equipment.

Thanks to the Lowe’s Heroes program through Lowes Home Improvement in Mocksville and Statesville, the donations and volunteer hours spent on the Mocksville garden will go a long way, said garden director, Diane Salmon.

The volunteers constructed 10 new raised beds, filled them, and built two compost bins for the Clement Street site.  They gave 40 new buckets for a watering system, two picnic tables, two roto-tillers, four wheel barrows, four solar lights, four hoses, rakes, shovels, garden tools, and more.

They also plan to help with the Storehouse for Jesus garden site on US64.

“Lowes, you are our heroes too,” Salmon said.  “Thank you Bruce Pennington and all  of the Lowes helpers.”
