Sterling Elementary School
Gardening soil, tools, seeds and equipment for a school garden.
This is our fifth year of presenting Eating from the Garden, a course for elementary students designed by the University of Missouri. The course focuses on eating healthy, growing your own vegetables and fruits, and being a good steward of the land. Over the five years, we have expanded our garden to include 8 raised beds, a greenhouse as well as 6 apple, pear and peach trees. As school budgets tighten, we need outside assistance to keep our class going and growing.
Funds will be used to purchase gardening soil, fertilizers, tools, supplies and seeds, as well as fruits and vegetables for bi-monthly student tasting.
Our current operations require $2,000 for the school year. The school provides $500 per year.
