The Problem

We are a larger elementary school in the town with an area we would like to start to garden, using raised garden beds. Our goal is two-fold: 1. Have our most impacted special education students be in charge of the new garden project and act as leaders by becoming the gardening experts, where we then can invite non-special education students to participate in the garden and learn from students who typically are not the leaders 2. While our school district doesn't have a high population of financially troubled families, the community does have needs and the food bank is constantly looking for donations. Our intention is to harvest and donate to the food pantry.

Our Plan

Increase inclusion of our most needy special education students Increase donations of fresh food to our food bank Increase student understanding of where our food comes from
