Katie’s Krops: It all began with a 40-pound cabbage that served 275 people

Katie Stagliano has written a book, “Katie’s Cabbage,” which tells how a third-grader from Summerville, SC, decided to put her mammoth cabbage to good use by donating it to a local soup kitchen, and how, as she put it in an interview, “one thing just led to another.” W. P. Rawl hosts an all-expenses-paid camp for about 15 Katie’s Krops gardeners each summer to learn creative growing techniques, host a service project and receive information on food safety. Rawl also provides a college scholarship to the Katie’s Krops grantee of the year.
