Project description

We purchased several plants that attract butterflies to pollenate our garden. We purchased tomatoes, okra, peppers, kale, basil, mint, cucumber and lettuce. Each grade level was in charge of maintaining a section of the garden. They were able to taste each item which was great as many students tried items they had never tried before or thought they disliked. We educated our 850 students on the food deprived and homeless in our Tampa Bay area. We created short videos for our morning news show to do so. We also were able to purchase snacks, toiletries, and dog food to make 25 blessing bags for the homeless in our town, many of whom are Veterans.
