The Problem

My students want to expand our school garden to invite pollinators to help increase food production. We want to add more flowers to our garden to feed the bees, moths, bats, and butterflies that frequent our edible school garden. We also need to replace our heavy-duty tomato cages to help support the many tomatoes grown from seed in our classroom greenhouse. Lastly, we would like to purchase a wagon to help us move our plants from the garden to the compost or from our greenhouse to the garden, etc…

Our Plan

The Roots & Shoots mini-grant will be used to support our service learning project through providing funding to purchase: heavy duty tomato cages, native pollinator plants, and a garden cart.
