Science Garden for Maple Kids

My students need rain barrels, hose connectors, and growlab compact to support their learning in the outdoor Science Garden.

My Students

Many of our students face hunger as a reality. The Maple Science Garden provides students the opportunity to not only learn about the life cycle of plants, it provides them a means of learning about ways to provide food security for their families.

Many of our students face great challenges daily.

65% receive free or reduced lunch. For some, these are the best meals they receive all day. We have taken on a health initiative at our school. We are promoting healthy choices and encouraging our students to get moving. The school is truly a community school and we embrace our students and families. As a result, a once overgrown garden area is being reborn into a health-promoting science garden where healthy eating, healthy living, and science education are hands-on and fun!

My Project

The rain barrels, hose connectors, and growlabs requested will provide the materials we need for planting in the Spring. The garden already possesses tools that were donated by the PTA. The items we are requesting will provide adequate supplies to get the students through two seasons of planting. Up to this point, all of the seeds, potting soil, and seedlings have been brought from supplies left over from another teacher's garden at home. The supplies provided by this grant will allow multiple classrooms in various grade levels to have materials to start seedlings.

The Maple Science Garden is a place of excitement where students enjoy spending their time.

The Science Garden helps support the California Science Standards while giving student ownership in a hands-on environment. The garden empowers students minds and bodies.
