The Problem

We hope to continue to build upon our current Edible Classroom. Using the 13 raised beds in our school yard and donated goods we, we have begun teaching an Eco-Curriculum. The focus this year has been "from the garden to the kitchen". Students tend and raise our garden beds outside and use the resources in our Edible Classroom to learn how to prepare healthy meals, learn about our ecosystem, and project plan.

Our Plan

Our project will allow our students to build an additional resource for our classroom. We are hoping to create a composting and creepy crawler station. This station will allow students to observe and study the various stages of composting as well as experience and interact with live insects, worms, and other native species within the classroom.
