Let Love Grow! Gardening and Growing Our Own Food

The Description

The pandemic instantly changed our world- moving hands-on learning onto a digital and much less personal platform. While our teachers did an incredible job adapting to distance learning, we are excited to be returning to a full campus in the fall. 

There are three main areas of focus as we enter into a new school year: 

  • meeting the social emotional needs of our students 
  • providing students with engaging and hands-on learning experiences
  • ensuring the needs of our students and their families are met outside of the classroom

These funds will help to achieve all three goals. By donating to this project, you will be supporting the development of a school garden. We already have gardening tools, but are in need of supplies to rebuild our garden beds. Our school garden will be tended to by our students and it will grow food that will be directly provided to the families within our community. 

Back Up Plan

If we do not reach our goal, we will downsize our original plan and purchase smaller garden boxes to be able to grow vegetables and fruits that require less space.

Hi, Courtney. I admire what you are wanting to do with your kids and the focus you have for this fall with school and what is definitely going to be children's needs. If you end up not getting enough for seeds, starter plants or the like, please reach out to me on Facebook (my work platform won't let me connect on here or I would have done that). My FB name is Angela Raby-Butler. You can PM me and I have some friends who would likely donate actual product for you.
