Our wish for this project is to enable a stronger sense of community, help families at our elementary school have access to free, fresh and organic produce, and to learn new skills. In addition, students will learn about a variety of plants, why they are healthy and sustainable, and how to cook the herbs and vegetables!
We will create a local and sustainable food system where families are able to access more fresh produce to incorporate in meals at home and create new learning opportunities for students at school! We'll be working with parents, students, local businesses, non-profit groups, members of the Garden Committee team, and district personal to get our mission accomplished!
We will also be creating a Colorado native plants garden therefore providing bees and butterflies a home and place to thrive.
