Our elementary school has a beautiful school garden called Helping Hands Garden that we use to engage our students in inquiry-based and hands-on learning in an outdoor classroom setting. Through this wonderful space, students benefit from exposure to a natural, outdoor learning environment and gain an understanding of where their food comes from. Students are able to identify and experience different vegetables and learn to make healthy life-long choices. We are committed to making sure we have healthy soil and plants so our students have the best learning opportunities we can offer them. Each spring I work with the third graders to plant the school garden. Their families volunteer to weed and water the garden. In the Fall, the students return as 4th graders and we harvest the garden. All of the produce is given to the cafeteria workers to feed the entire school a healthy lunch and snacks. Our school garden was founded in 2008 by community volunteers and has been well-loved by our students. The current raised beds are rotting and the lumber needs to be replaced. The decaying raised garden beds are crumbling and exposing screws and a trellis collapsed during a thunderstorm, making it an unsafe space for the students. The raised garden bed reconstruction will ensure our students can continue to learn in a thriving Helping Hands Garden. In a collaboration with the project, our local high school shop class will build the beds and install them in our garden but need the materials to do so.
