School Gardens: Let’s Get Growing

School Gardens: Let’s Get Growing!

Lavaca Elementary students Blake Holsted, Zeke Crowder, Nicholas Spicer and Conner Painter (not pictured) worked together to install raised garden beds that were purchased with grant funds from the Arkansas Coalition for Obesity Prevention (ArCOP) to help support the implementation of school gardens. Funds were also used to purchase necessary tools and supplies for the new middle school greenhouse that is expected to be complete by the first week in December. Students at both schools will be able to grow various plants, flowers and foods to study and use for taste testing in the classroom and cafeteria.
