eDCSD Garden Project
Hi EDCSD Families,
This email is a follow up to the email we sent announcing our elementary students garden here at EDCSD.
Our school garden will serve as a team building and social connection endeavor which will continue for years to come. Furthermore, this project serves as part of a larger unit we are doing around local problems, such as hunger. Our students are learning about how hunger affects children in our own community, and will be connecting our school garden to community outreach programs to help feed families.
We are looking for some assistance in various areas. First of all, if you have any background or expertise on gardening and building garden beds, please contact the school with ways in which you can help.
We are also looking for seed donations and transplants to start our garden. Specifically, we are planning on planting pumpkins, watermelons, lettuce, potatoes, raspberries, beans, and herbs.
Although we have $500, a money donation will help a lot. If you are willing to contribute towards our garden, you can now donate using the link below, by clicking on "Donation" at the bottom of the page, then click Register. All donations are tax deductible so remember to print your receipt.
