My students need materials to make our own compost, and add to our current garden. They need worms, containers, gloves, liners, veggie kits and more.
Last year we had a tragedy hit our school community. A student in 5th grade passed away on our campus on his way out to play P.E. Our whole community was hit hard by this sad event. To try to help the community heal I am continuing a memorial garden in his honor. Please consider helping us.
The students I teach are from a low socio-economic area.
There are a lot of immigrants from Mexico that are trying to make a new life for their child here. Many left amazing land in their home country to get their child a good education. Many had farms and gardens but left those behind.
I'm afraid that many of our students do not know a lot about gardens. I was inspired by Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution to try to get my students in touch with nature and where their food comes from. Many do not recognize a potato in raw form, it's a sad state of affairs.
Will you help my first graders this year learn all their vegetables by continue the tradition I started last year with my students?
This year's class has already heard that we are the class with a garden and are anxious to get started. Please consider helping us make healthy choices and learn at the same time. This garden has helped not only my classroom, but other students at the school heal from the tragic loss we suffered not long ago. Thank you so much for your consideration.
