What is your wish for this project?
My students are innovative, creative and kind. They also face economic difficulties- in fact, 80% of my students receive free/reduced lunch at our site. My wish for this project is to provide healthy food for my students, grow our school community garden to support my students and their family, and also include a native plant area to support our native wildlife and increase biodiversity at our site.
How did it go?
It went wonderfully! We were able to create a native milkweed garden, added more edibles to our edible garden, and held our first farmer's market. We have also partnered with another teacher at our site and we will be adding a mural as well as adding additional wildlife resources- bird baths, bird feeders, bug houses etc. This year.
