Mrs. Hill from Jacksonville FL is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Learning and Growing

My students need new garden beds to replace the existing wooden beds that are rotting.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My school is in a suburban area of Florida. Quite a few of the students come from families that struggle to provide basic school supplies. Many of these children live in apartments and have limited access to the experience of growing and cultivating their own fruits and vegetables.

The first grade consists of about 75 students that would be thrilled to have the opportunity to participate in a hands-on learning experience.

I am creating this project in hopes of instilling a lifelong love of gardening!

My Project

The first-grade science curriculum covers life cycles, parts of a seed, and parts of a plant. At our school, the students participate in hands-on learning through the maintenance of our garden. Many of the students spend their own recess time weeding and watering the garden.

The beds that we have are beginning to rot and desperately need to be replaced.

We have successfully replaced several of the beds and need to replace the few remaining beds that are becoming a dangerous situation. Your donation will help us to continue to allow children to learn through hands-on​ learning.
