Educational School Garden

idea by Cindy111364

Overview of Outdoor Idea

We are starting an educational school garden here at Mother Teresa Regional School. We feel that this is an excellent way to get the children to learn more about where our fruits and vegetables come from with a hands-on learning garden.

The Specifics: What will the $5,000 fund?

There are two parents starting the garden and we bought the wood for the raised garden beds and are having them constructed. The $5,000 will fund the expenses for the garden including the raised garden beds, the soil, the plants, gardening tools, hoses, a wheel barrow, and any other expenses that go along with gardening.

A school garden offers a way of helping children to identify with their school and feel proud of their own individual contribution. Children know which plants they helped to grow, and they feel proud of them. This can improve school spirit and children's attitude toward the school. Children also learn responsibility, teamwork, respect for nature, and patience.

Please vote for us! We are starting an educational school garden at Mother Teresa Regional School. Since this garden will be run by parents, we really could use $5,000 to help with the expenes associated with gardening and help to make this gardening experience a positive one for our children. Thank you in advance for your vote!
