For my son’s school I have submitted a grant proposal from a big box store for $3,600 to build 8 raised laboratory garden beds. Each grade level will get their own 4ft by 8ft raised garden bed to plant. We live in Chicago, and most of the students live in apartment buildings so they have little to no access to out door space at home. This gives them a chance to see where food comes from, something the rest of us have taken for granted. When I was little we had a huge vegetable garden that provided most of our fresh food. It was a lot of work, but a valuable learning experience.
Lets hope we get the grant!
