May Community Partner: Katie’s Krops

SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (WCIV) — We know it’s important to eat our fruits and vegetables every day, but some people can’t afford fresh produce and don’t have access to healthy options.

That’s where our May Community Partner, Katie’s Krops, comes in. The non-profit is not only feeding the community, but also getting kids and teens interested in gardening.

Much like her garden, Katie Stagliano’s journey started with a seed.

“I was in the third grade,” Stagliano said. “I planted a tiny cabbage seedling and that tiny seedling grew to be a 40-pound cabbage. This 40-pound cabbage was the size of my 4-year-old brother.”
