Saint Richard Kindergraten learns about planting


Conservation Initiative: Planting a Garden

As a school, we have been focused on planting in various ways. In our school community, we see food scarcity, and it is important we show kids how easy it is to grow their food. We also have a pet bearded dragon and wanted to grow her fresh produce year-round. We have a hydroponic growing system, classroom growing lights, a greenhouse, and raised garden beds. Students have the opportunity to grow plants and seeds, nurture and transplant seedlings, weed and water gardens and finally harvest and enjoy their efforts.

This Conservation Project was made possible by
Union 52 Benevolent Society.
