Seed of change
Our school has applied for a grant from Seeds of Change.
COMMON GROUND: Planting the future one seed at a time
follow the link above to vote for our garden
and type 28771 into the search box
you can vote once per day
This grant will allow us to refurbish our greenhouse,
build trellises for additional grapes and berries,
refurbish existing planters and add some additional ones,
built a strawberry pyramid,
and add soome cold frames to extend our growing season.
We would be able to
grow  lot of small vegetables in our courtyard garden.
The gardening would be integrated into
lessons taught in several curricular areas
Appalachian Culture,
Foods & Nutrition,
Healthy Living,
We currently have programs in place
that provide "weekend bags" of food for kids (Knights' Pantry)
and provide free lunch to local children over the summer.
Food from the garden would be used to supplement these programs.
