My Students

Imagine being able to grow vegetables and herbs to make your very own pizza or taste a fresh grown salad for the first time! Many children won't touch a veggie with a 10-foot pole - but if they grow it they just might! (LIVE FEED)

We are a small charter school in Georgia.

The location of our school suffers from frequent flooding and a traditional garden has not been successful. Our students deserve this valuable opportunity to learn about healthy eating and how growing your own foods can be not only rewarding but incredibly tasty!

My Project

(LIVE FEED) Nutrition education through school gardening will increase children's knowledge about fruits and vegetables and will improve their attitudes toward developing healthy eating habits. So let's put down the chips and grow a potato! Help us grow a garden.

Please help make a small garden possible for our students!

The gardening lessons they learn today will last a lifetime and hopefully promote a healthier planet! Let's excite children to eat healthy with LIVE FEED!
