Growing a Community Garden

The Problem

Sts. Peter & Paul School's 5th & 6th graders wish for our garden produce to be distributed and used for the local community who are in need of healthy food donations.

Our Plan

Sts. Peter & Paul 5th & 6th graders will grow with aquaponics edible plants, including lettuce, herbs, and vegetables to transplant in a garden reserved for community produce. Students will harvest the produce and keep refrigerated until it can be arranged to give to local food pantry visitors in need of healthy foods.
