Tower Gardens- Alternate Implementation Plan due COVID19

*NJAHPERD has been on hold due to not receiving funding. As of Friday, May 7th, we just heard that we received our funds.

Step 1- I will coordinate with the executive director to order the tower gardens and necessary plants.

Step 2- Once I receive the tower Gardens, I will do a three-part video series with an introduction on the program and how to set up and start planting. I will share those videos with the Principal and teachers. The teachers will then share with their students.

Step 3- I will continue to grow veggies with the garden and video the progress. I also plan on having the teachers who will be implementing the program once we get back to school, have a tower garden and grow veggies. They will document and share their progress with their students.
