My Project

Our school is working on getting a Deep Learning activity for our students and has decided to start a school garden. This will help students from multiple classrooms and various grade levels to have hands-on experience growing their own fruits and vegetables.

Each class will get to design their own garden space and harvest their grown produce.

Students will get to design, plant, care for, harvest, and then enjoy what they grow. They will work collaboratively with their classmates while gaining experience in taking proper care of their garden space.
