The Problem

Our school district has implemented a health goal for this school year. One major goal is "to promote a district-wide focus on health and wellness for all students". We would love to revitalize our school garden and focus on healthy foods and support healthy eating habits. Students will go outdoors and conduct garden hands-on activities to help them to be more civic minded. We will bring our harvest back into the classroom and have a garden to table cooking club.

Our Plan

We would love to have a garden to table cooking club. We would use this mini-grant to purchase classroom cooking materials. We will harvest from our outdoor garden space as well as herbs grown in our classroom. My students have expressed interest in having a before school breakfast cookshop. We have a homeless shelter at our corner, we would love to partner with them and provide needy people with food from our harvest and cooking club.
