The Problem

Last year my first and second graders and I built a beautiful raised bed on our school grounds. Unfortunately, there was a plumbing issue that required tearing up the whole area right before Harvest Time. We have rebuilt some of the frame but most of our good loam was washed away or moved during the process. We also hope to plant organic, heirloom seedlings or seeds as soon as the weather warms.

Our Plan

Our garden was flourishing last year. The children were very excited to share in the Harvest as well as all of the work that needed doing to keep the garden healthy. I would love to replicate that experience again this year. Anyone that visits our school can see our beautification first hand.
