My Students

My students are wonderful aspiring scientists! They are passionate about the environment, sustainability, and local food security. These kiddos absolutely love spending time in our greenhouse and working in our raised beds outside.

Seeing teenagers get excited about their seeds forming little sprouts makes my heart so happy!

I look forward to utilizing this platform to help ensure they have everything they need and more for a phenomenal Environmental Science education.

My Project

My students and I are so lucky to have a big, beautiful greenhouse at our disposal right outside my classroom! In the past 4 months alone, we've transformed the greenhouse into a clean, workable space and we've planted dozens of seeds!

My students love spending time in our greenhouse!

Unfortunately, we need quite a bit more potting soil than what we currently have. We're almost completely out! In order for us to plant vegetables and wildflowers in our greenhouse and in the raised beds outside, we desperately need more soil.

The soil purchased through this project will allow my students in both my Environmental Science classes as well as in our Environmental Club to get their hands dirty and interact with the earth in ways they usually never have before. Thanks in advance!
