EVENT: Annie's Garden Funder
Keira Armstrong wrote -Washington Elementary has been lucky to have a federally funded cooking and gardening program for the past 12 years. Thanks to changes in the farm bill, that funding has evaporated, so we're fighting to maintain our established and highly valued school garden and kitchen laboratory! Our district has given all our schools some funding but it is only enough for 2 or 3 grade levels to receive the program that used to serve everyone. Our school community is stepping in to raise additional funds to insure that as many students as possible have access to outdoor, hands-on, inquiry-based learning about science, math, literacy, nutrition and life skills. Thank you for your help!
