After tackling the white picket fence around Mr. McGregor's Garden at the recent Kiwanis Aktion Club Workday, volunteer Jack Hatfield decided to do even more: he painted Mr. McGregor's tool-shed!
In the classic story of Peter Rabbit, the tool-shed is a place where the crotchety Mr. McGregor stores spare flower pots, rakes, hoes, and other Useful Things. In the Carolina Children's Garden, the tool-shed is a place where kind and cheerful Master Gardeners store, well, flower pots, rakes, hoes, and other Useful Things.

We are happy the shed has received such a nice face-lift, and we are extremely grateful to Mr. Hatfield for donating his time and talent to this cause! (We think Mr. McGregor is grateful, too!)
