Greetings from South Yonkers! I am the 7th and 8th grade Science teacher at our small school of Pre-K-8th grade students. My students are passionate about their school and their community. Many of our students and families are first generation immigrants who are looking to build up their new communities. Unfortunately, our community has significant struggles with poverty. 92% of my students’ families qualify for free or reduced lunch and our city’s school budget doesn’t always allow us to make up the difference in my students’ opportunities versus their more advantaged peers. Our students also do not get the same extra state or federal funding as many neighboring schools, because our school is classified as being in Good Standing (due to their hard work and efforts to overcome adversity). We have a phenomenal opportunity to help students improve their community, gain real world skills, and make connections to healthy foods/eating habits. Recently my school completed a renovation that gave us three new planters but sadly no supplies to use them. Through a partnership with the Greyston, (a local non-profit who establishes community gardens in vacant lots of urban areas) and our middle school students we would like to establish the school’s first community garden! Our partnership has given us the expertise we need to move forward, but we need your help to purchase the much needed supplies (tools, soil, seeds, etc.). With your help our students will be able to grow their own carrots, tomatoes, cilantro, onions, and more! I can’t imagine anything more beautiful than my students getting to prepare their own pico de gallo with ingredients they grew and harvested with their own hands in their own community!
