Julie is fr. Davis Bilingual Elementary Magnet School in Tucson, AZ. “We currently have 5 keyhole beds & 4 long beds for vegetable gardens. We would like to dig more sunken beds, mix them w/ quality compost, plant & harvest during class time, after school & on our monthly community work days. We would also like to start providing a weekly farmer's market for our school community with our gardens' harvest throughout the school year." #diggingdeeper

Birdie is a teacher at City Academy in St. Louis, MO. She tells us, "My school is in an economically depressed area where students have little opportunity to grow anything, especially their own food!" She's #diggingdeeper by expanding this small garden to a farm to table program featuring fruits, veggies, herbs, and backyard chickens. Students will also build portable gardens to keep at home.

Terri is a parent at Atlantic Avenue Elementary in Haddon Heights, NJ. "The children got to learn how to design a garden, choose the veggies that will grow in the garden, plant the seeds, maintain the garden and during our last session we enjoyed the harvesting with a garden salad party!  The children also kept a garden journal to track and record the changes in their gardens." #diggingdeeper

The Branch School outdoor classroom program in Houston, TX includes vegetable gardening and several ecosystems to study (native plantings, pond/bog, pocket prairie).  They would like to expand the composting facilities from 2 beds to 3 & re-level the blocks around our 3 raised veg beds. They also need polyethylene cover for 2 SunLighter grow stands that sit on a covered deck to allow temperature control in winter. Students will be taking the vegetables home with recipes. #gettingstarted

Lauren is a parent at Marblehead Community Charter Public School in Marblehead, MA. "Our 15-year old garden is already organic.  As the school serves fresh produce, strengthening its ability to produce its own food would be cost effective. We’ll expand integration of the school garden across the grade level curricula - soil chemistry, biology, crop rotation. This gives the kids hands-on experience that they can apply in science, nutrition, and math courses (at the very least)."…

Heather is a parent fr University Elementary School in Bloomington, IL. "The cafeteria staff has agreed to make use of anything grown in the garden. We have the chance to get real, fresh food in the mouths of more children across the school. The availability of delicious, fresh herbs and vegetables grown by fellow students will encourage children to broaden their eating. Once children analyze the differences in the fresh produce, it will steer them toward fresh options.” #diggingdeeper
