The Problem

We have an area outside of our classroom that has some wooden planters, tables, and benches that need to be replaced. We want to keep this area open, available, and safe for our students so we need to replace some of the benches and planters. We also need money for new soil and plants. The children love spending time in this area and planting, watering, and taking care of the plants. They learn a lot about food and are more willing to try vegetables and fruits they they have grown themselves.

Our Plan

Our project will focus on making our area outside of our classroom more beautiful and safe. Many of our students live in apartments and do not have gardens at home. We want to continue to have this beautiful outdoor area where students can learn about growing vegetables and fruits but we need to replace some of the planters and benches because they are very old. This grant will allow us to continue to have this valuable space for our students.
