Living Here

Olivia Schmal has transformed Greer Soup Kitchen’s garden, where she is helping to grow vegetables and herbs. Schmal, along with her parents and siblings, have been eating at the soup kitchen for years.

Volunteers transform garden

Gardening is in the Schmals’ blood, said Kimberly and daughter Olivia.

Kimberly grew up doing it. Olivia, a 21-year-old North Greenville biology senior, has too. They have a garden at home where they grow their own food. They also volunteer in the garden at the Greer Soup Kitchen.

Harpst has new fan

Cliff Harspt is something of a Greer celebrity.

He’s an honorary Greater Greer Chamber of Commerce member. He has a sandwich named after him at Stomping Grounds, where he frequents. He has even made an appearance in the City of Greer’s selfie contest.

So it should come as no surprise that Senator Tim Scott seems to be a fan.

The mountain of moving

After what feels like 100 years, we are finally scheduled to close on our house this week. This process has taken forever. We even had to file an extension. I’m still not clear why, but that’s a story for another day.
