The Gravatt Farm
The Gravatt Garden- Gravatt's gardening program began in 2009 with a few small garden boxes and a lot of hope. Of course, that first season ended up producing a basket full of tomatoes - and that was about it.
In 2018, thanks to the support of donors, and the dedication of Gravatt staff, the Gravatt Gardens grew into Camp Gravatt Farms and produced some delicious fruits and vegetables!
Today, guests at our conference center and summer campers enjoy meals prepared with zucchini, squash, okra, tomatoes, greens, cantaloupe, watermelon, and peppers - all picked daily and fresh as can be!
Our kitchen works throughout the year to preserve a great deal of food so guests can enjoy delicious vegetables and soups throughout the year.
Gravatt is a Fresh on the Menu member and our produce is Certified SC.
The Gravatt Animals- In addition to growing fresh, delicious fruits and vegetables, Gravatt also raises goats and chickens as part of our Environmental Education program. The goats are cared for as part of our summer camp program, and have proved to be a pivotal part of the camper experience. The chickens are raised for their eggs to be used in the Gravatt kitchen, served to hundreds of campers and guests throughout the year.
