The Problem

Our goal is to help our community eat healthy, save money, support stewardship, while reducing their carbon footprint. Students will grow organic produce at our school, from planting to harvest, and sell it at our weekly farmer's market, which takes place one day a week, at dismissal, at our school. We want to make it easy to make strong choices!

Our Plan

We will grow our own food, sell it, and learn about healthy eating. Students will keep the books, order, figure out prices, run a cash register & produce scale. They will learn how to be sustainable.
