Eat Your Veggies

Help me give my students fresh vegetables and the experience of watching them grow!

My Students

Our school serves approximately 345 students in grades 3-6, with an additional self-contained intensive needs program. We strive to provide a strong foundation of academic excellence through a curriculum that challenges each student to reach his/her highest potential.

We believe that our children are our future.

Our staff believe that both the school and community should work cooperatively in the best interest of students to foster good citizenship. We share with families the responsibility for the development of social skills and judgment that enable our graduates to be productive and responsible citizens in our community and in their personal lives.

My Project

Fresh fruits and vegetables are a rarity in rural Alaska due to the harsh climate and remoteness. Our students regularly do not eat enough of the daily recommended fruits and vegetables. A “Farm Plus” Aerogarden in the classroom will produce enough food for each student to experience fresh vegetables as a snack that they might not otherwise get. Also, an Aerogarden at in the classroom would give the students an opportunity to study the plant cycle in a way that is more accessible for our student population. Our students culture is to learn by seeing and then doing. Most of our students are kinesthetic or hands-on learners. Having a “Farm Plus” Aerogarden (24-pod/plant) kit for our classroom would give all students the opportunity to learn in a way that is beneficial to them.
