While the last week of classes continue and Studio V’s semester review is this Friday, April 25th, the Crop Stop is quickly coming together. Currently we have finished applying the metal exterior siding to the two end wall, half of the metal roofing is also up, and the north wall is being started. As a group Studio V understands we will not be able to finish the build phase of the project by the end of the semester. Professor Pastre has already made arrangement with some of the students to finish the project over the free time in the summer. Hopefully thou because we have roughly two more weeks of all seven student still in the Charleston area the build will only need minor finishing touches over the summer. The installment date of the Crop Stop on the Sweet Grass Gardens is still up in the air.
Last night Studio V was invited and attended the Farm-To-School Partner’s Dinner. In which we got to present the project to many local Farm-To-School programs that share to the same goals. We would like to take this moment to thank the continued support from Dr. Olivia Thompson and for also coordinating such a great dinner. Studio V was impressed with each program and is thankful to be such a small part in a larger movement. The dinner will surly give us the last needed push to make sure we finish the Crop Stop and see the future impact the kitchen will have with the Farm-To-School Program.
