The Problem

Children are sponges who want to learn about the world around them. I believe that as educators, we should pass on to children the knowledge we have gained throughout our lives. The earlier children are introduced to new experiences, the more time they have to pursue new interests. This garden will adjust each VPK student's lack of gardening knowledge and expose them to how it is create, maintained, and everything else associated with having a garden!

Our Plan

We've decided on a location for the garden and have even asked parents of our VPK students to volunteer. We know of all of the materials we'll need to get started and have invited gardening experts, here in Tallahassee, to speak with our students.
