Here is how the project went:
These past few months of 2021 we were able to harvest at least 25 lbs. of produce from our garden. Our students were able to learn how to garden especially at such an important time as this. They learned how to grow ginger, zucchini and other legumes.
Through this project I/we learned:
Through this project, we felt supported through the effortless work of our students and their willingness to be outside and actively participate in each garden session.
What I/we might change:
We might change how to communicate with the school's leadership whom we partner with and how to recruit students into our programming.
My/our favorite part of this project was:
Our favorite part of the project was being able to grow new plants in the garden along with our students and seeing their faces light up when they were able to harvest.
Some tips, tricks or fun facts about the project:
A tip in creating and starting a garden program would be to first know what your community needs are and how to best alleviate any stressors.
