My Students

We are a school making steps to Go Green! We're taking little steps, but hopefully with new greenhouse materials, we will be able to make bigger strides towards being a Green school.

The students at this Michigan high school come from very diverse backgrounds.

Our school is the largest high school in our city and most of our school's population come from low income households. This project would help our Greenhouse Club get off to a good start!

My Project

With the help of FEED USA, we hope to inspire students to lead a healthier lifestyle. We will be able to use the Grow Boxes and gardening tools to get our green house up and going! Hopefully, we can teach students to eat healthy foods and grow up to be healthy citizens in our ever changing society. Students need to be aware of how foods grow and the process it takes to produce healthy foods. In turn, we hope to take the fruits of our labor and pass them along to our cooking class to create some yummy dishes.

By helping to fund this project, you will touch the lives of so many students.

You will help to instill a healthy lifestyle by allowing students to grow nutritious fruits and vegetables.
