The Problem

The students at Cherrelyn Elementary have been working on ways to connect the school and the community which is located in a high poverty area. 5th and 6th grade students designed and priced out a garden which they call the "field of dreams." In order to begin construction, we are asking for help with building materials.

Our Plan

Our project involves the construction of a community garden which can be accessed by families during the summer months. Students would utilize the garden during the school year to connect math, science, health, and social studies. We have students, teachers, parents, and class time to use to build our garden. An action plan has been started and we need to move forward with funding.
