Community Corner

With the help of our community, OCP has been able to connect youth to engaging and vibrant members of Oconee, Pickens, and Anderson counties. Be sure to visit their sites and locations to support those who support our youth!

The Callahans of Callywood Farms have a passion for growing their own food and have been gracious enough to open their home to our CultivaTeen program. They've led a farm-to-table workshop with our teens three years in a row, and is was met with enthusiastic interest and participation! 

Mike West of Yesterdaze Record Store in Seneca has supported the Oconee Cultivation Project since its inception. He was the first to sponsor a raised garden bed at the Bountyland Community Garden site, and has opened his space for our CultivaTeen Meet & Greets. Crew Members enjoy field trips to the store, including an OCP promotional show featuring local bands. 

The Westminster Music Centre offers a wonderful space for fundraising events, like our OCP Spring Soirée. This unique facility has been designed from the ground up to provide both the artist and audience with an environment where music can be enjoyed and appreciated the way it was meant to be – up close and personal. Fostered by Westminster's small town warmth and hospitality, they host the region’s finest musicians, artists and performers.

Workshops hosted by Rensing Center  nourish creative capability and interaction in artistic and environmental fields, allowing Crew Members to combine their talents and skills to produce truly unique pieces of artwork.

Carolina Bauernhaus has shown great support for CultivaTeen workshops by providing ingredients for our kitchen and leaders for some of our workshops. The Bauernhaus was also a Presenting Sponsor in our 2018 Spring Soirée. 

Clemson University's Solid Green program has partnered with OCP to provide quality compost from the Cherry Hill Research Center. This compost provides the CultivaTeen Reid Homestead Learning Garden and Re-Fresh: Westminster Community Garden with healthy soil for our beautiful plots!
