Hooray! This project is fully funded
We all have a story to tell, and my students are no different: they have very compelling stories. At our alternative high school, we have students who have lost parents, students who have a desire to better their lives through education, students who are the sole breadwinners for their families, students who are incredibly smart yet have not been able to attend school because they have needed to take care of siblings. There are so many stories.
Our students are here because they want to graduate from high school and continue to improve their lives through education, training, and employment.
They have plans for the future that include being self-sufficient, contributing members of the community. They just need a chance to get the education that can help them achieve their dreams.
Our school has a well established garden that has produced hundreds of pounds of fruits and vegetables for our students to take home to their families.
Our students love gardening and they especially love taking home the fruits of their labors throughout the summer and fall.
They are fulfilled by watching their seeds take and grow into food!
Because our garden has been up and running for 3 years, we need to replace some of the soil that has compacted in the raised beds.Your donation will help us fill up our garden boxes and augment the soil with quality products for another summer of tasty cucumbers, peppers, tomatoes, squash, apples and more!
