How Does Your Garden Grow

My students need assorted seeds and potting soil.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

I am a science teacher of grades 6 - 8. We are growing a garden in the classroom. We need soil, seeds, and many other supplies to reach our classroom goal.

I want to teach the students how the life cycle of a plant works. To show them how we can cultivate things from a seed.

By receiving these supplies my students will be able to have a garden, grow items, and learn to cook these items.

This is something that an inner city student probably will not get a chance to see or do. They will be able to see what real farmers do and reap the benefits. They will also learn how to turn this product into a cooking situation.

Grades 6-8
Nearly all students from low‑income households
