North Carroll Community School Mini Farm

  • Location
    Westminster, Maryland
  • Status
  • Project created by nccs

The Problem

Our wish for this project is to inspire and teach our students about how to grow food, develop an understanding of nature and natural processes, and encourage recycling. We also hope to help our community by donating food from our mini farm to the local food bank.

Our Plan

Our project will build a mini farm at our new school, focusing on organic growing techniques. We will incorporate composting from the school cafeteria to recycle waste and add nutrients to our garden. The K - 8 students will participate in and learn from garden activities and food from the gardens will be contributed to our local food bank.
