My Students

We have an incredible group of diverse students that range in age from 9th - 12th grade. They are excited about reviving the garden area at our school that will be considered a safe place that is free from judgement and open to all. A place that students and staff go to plant seeds, take care of the plants and most importantly provide a welcoming place to relax, de-stress, and be proud of their whole-school environment. By connecting farm practices to nutrition, students will increase positive personal health outcomes while building community awareness and continued garden participation.

My Project

The garden will represent a safe place on our campus that is free from judgement and discrimination. Our club will use the wheelbarrow, trowels, and other garden supplies to create an environment that promotes acceptance, and will, in turn, create a more positive school climate. It will provide a space for our students to learn about the environment, and learn how to create their own farm to table experience. Most importantly, we will make our garden a place that students can go to de-stress, as we have many students that struggle with academic and social anxiety. Staff are also welcome to participate. We appreciate your contribution to our oasis of calm in the challenging environment of our rigorous academic institution.
