The Problem

Noticing with Covid kids have a lack of spaces to play in so they are playing in school forest and leaving garbage and ripping up the soil. Also the school yard beds look like they have been fallow for a very long time yet has a lot of potential to grow food for consumption and habitat for pollinators, insects and birds.

Our Plan

Cleaning and caring for the 8-10 trees and revitalizing the garden beds to create a space where we can teach about organic gardening and healthy food choices in a area that is a relative food desert.
