The Little Sprouts Garden Club is a group of children, ages four and up, that learn to plant, maintain and harvest the crops from their garden adjacent to the Landrum Farmers Market. The Sprouts are educated by many of the vendors at the Farmers Market, and now that knowledge is hoping to be shared with the Landrum Legends, an ages 50 and up senior group. 

The Little Sprouts, in collaboration with the City of Landrum, came together to assist the Landrum Legends Group in planting a raised garden in the lot outside of the Anne Regan Aging Well Center, located at 503 S. Randolph Ave. in Landrum. 

Little Sprouts Club members JD and Eliza James were among those in attendance at the garden unveiling.

“I’m excited to show people how to plant plants,” said JD.

Sue Stroud, recreation assistant at the Anne Regan Aging Well Center, called the event “the community coming together, young and elder, for a wonderful union that will hopefully continue for years to come.” 

“I love it because it’s great. I like it,” said Landrum Legend Lucille Twitty. 

“Yes, it’s great,” agreed Legend Barbara Greene. “I’m excited to be here.”

Through the Spartanburg County Parks Division, the Landrum Legends participate in the 50+ Wellness Program at the center on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. The Little Sprouts Garden Club meets for 30 minutes each Saturday at the Landrum Farmers Market to learn the life cycle of plants and how to plant and nurture the food they grow.
