The Problem

We would like to create a school garden that could provide supplemental fruits, vegetables, and herbs to our school cafeteria salad bar. We would like to use materials that would make the cost of creating and maintaining the garden as low as possible.

Our Plan

Our project will give the students of Keeling a hands-on experience in the gardening process. Instead of settling for processed foods everyday, the hope is that students will discover delicious fruits, vegetables, and herbs to supplement their diets. The food generated from the garden will hopefully supplement the salad bar that the students currently use during lunch. With time and effort, we hope to create a healthy culture that will perpetuate into the students' homes and the surrounding community.
