Mr. Macartney from Stewart OH is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Federal Hocking Middle School Garden Project

My students need a Plant Growth Cart.

  • $883 goal

This project expired on March 17, 2011.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Each day many of our students have nothing to eat at their homes.

Our school is located in rural Ohio at the foothills of the Appalachian mountains.

Children of our school and their families had recently appeared Dateline's poverty program. Our school has 70% plus participation in the federal school lunch program.

My Project

Our project is the construction and continued use of a vegetable garden. Our goal is to teach the students about finding a sustainable way to feed themselves and their families. The materials that we are requesting will help the students sprout their seeds before the growing season to get a head start on planting.

Since school is the place where young people learn to become productive members of society, our garden project could not be better to fundamentally address that notion.

Being able to feeds oneself and one's family is a vital living skill.

Grades 6-8
More than half of students from low‑income households
