A Time to Reflect on our First Year!!!!

As our first year comes to a close we have made substantial progress and learned some important lessons along the way. We have two 10×20 garden beds in place and a plan for three more in the new grant year. We partnered with our neighborhood garden center and the rec department to create a sustainability plan for the new year. Our grammar school has implemented a curriculum for a “live” outdoor classroom focused on science and math. Our middle/high school students have designed a new exercise room for their fitness club. While our exercise equipment was harder to find than expected we finally have an order ready. Oh what a year its been!!!!!

We learned many lessons along the way and have finally figured out a way to maintain sustainability through some unforeseen changes. We are so grateful to our funders for the opportunity to continue this important work in the upcoming year. We cant wait to show you all of our successes in the upcoming months.

Thank you, Happy Holidays!!!!!!!!!!
