We are so excited to have partnered with the YMCA on their efforts to support the building of community gardens throughout Franklin. We received about $900 in grant money! With this "seed money" we were able to plant the foundation for a great on-going gardening project!
Vegetable and herb planting kits, root viewers and tools for each classroom!
We also were able to purchase three tiered beds that were assembled by our friends at the DPW! They even helped create a second garden bed where we can grow things like pumpkins!
Over the next week or so students will begin to plant and our summer students will keep the gardens growing by weeding and watering, as well as doing some of their own planting!
