My Project

I am so excited to be back and advocating for the amazing students at my school. The next phase in our Garden Project is to provide the students with new raised garden beds for our garden restoration project. Once again they have tackled another tough year of learning filled with uncertanties and many ups and downs. Depsite all of that they continue to achieve greatness and think of how they can best serve their school community. I want to be able to give them a space where they can express themselves, work together and invite the surrounding community to partner with them.

Our school garden was so beautiful and a place once filled with students.

The garden was where they spent time learning about the importance of plant life cycles, healthy eating, and giving back to the community. During the pandemic, the garden fell into disrepair. Thanks to donors like you, we were abe to replace our garden shed which housed many of the tools for our garden. Now we are ready to start planting and we need your help for this next phase!
