The Problem

Connect the orchard of 50 trees with a lively veggie garden and teaching students the joy of growing their vegetables for their culinary arts program.

Our Plan

This garden will receive 8 raised beds, placed into the orchard garden. We will teach students to build the raised beds, install drip irrigation, seed crops. Students will learn to compost as we install a compost bin, cultivate the crops and the fruit trees. Students will learn abut water schedule, thinning seedlings, grow harvest to prepare a wholesome meal.
