What is your wish for this project?

We hope to create an outdoor classroom which includes a demonstration school pollinator garden, expanding our Little Free Library "Trees Together" area to encourage others to do the same.

How did it go?

Ken DeFrank, principal of the Success Academy in Grand Island, NE, wrote a grant to get the funding for a school pollinator garden at Dodge School. Dodge Elementary School students are using state fair winnings from a combination of our (outdoor) Little Free Library and "Adopt a Cat" community service boards to help fund the project. This will be a shared effort between the Dodge chapter of the GIPS Roots&Shoots and the elementary Skills Academy/ high school Success Academy.
