The Problem

The Pandemic and school closures have closed our garden down and we need to revitalize our garden by starting from scratch. Our community will benefit from fresh food and collaboration through hands-on activities. This project will help build up our community. Expanding our garden aligns with our science curriculum and our want to be a more environmentally conscience. A green house will allow us to get outside at the beginning of the year. Parents, teachers and outside businesses can all partake in our gardening activities. We have a homeless shelter at our corner, we would love to partner with them and provide needy people with food from our harvest. This year we would like to expand the garden.

Our Plan

We would like to purchase a greenhouse, composting materials, multiple classroom grow stations and more garden tools and decorative accents. We have much more space in the front of our school to expand. We would like to add more decorative accents to our outside garden. We currently grow various fruits, vegetables and plants. We would like to install more raised beds to support more vegetation.
