My Project

At WES, we're all about giving our students from low-income backgrounds the chance to connect with nature and dive into the exciting world of STEM. Our school garden is their gateway to adventure, and we need your help to make it even more awesome!

Imagine growing up in an apartment with limited access to green spaces.

Our garden is a breath of fresh air and a place where kids can learn about science, grow plants, and just have fun outdoors. But here's the catch: we're missing a garden shed!

A garden shed might not sound like a big deal, but it'll make a world of difference. With it, we can store tools, learning materials, and STEM resources right in the garden. That means more hands-on experiments, more nature discoveries, and more smiles on our students' faces.

Your support will not only help us build a shed but also create lasting memories and open doors to STEM education. Picture the excitement as our kids witness plants growing, get their hands dirty in the soil, and explore the science behind it all. Your donation will turn this dream into a reality!

Join us in this adventure to connect our students with nature and inspire their passion for STEM. Your contribution, big or small, will help them grow and thrive, both academically and outdoors.

Thank you for being a part of this incredible journey and helping us bring nature and STEM to our amazing kids
