Environment Club Breaks New Ground…Literally

The Environment Club began moving earth for their raised bed garden project.  They are planning on growing and selling their produce on-campus and at local farmers markets.

The Environment Club leaders have been diligently working on a grant that will help them pay for all of their expenses and get the garden going faster.

On the far side of the garden the students are planning to create a grove of citrus trees and a place for students to sit and enjoy the area.

Next week they will be purchasing the wood and building the raised beds.  More on that later.

Back to the farm,

About ideadonnafarm

I am the resident farmer for IDEA Public Schools in Donna, Texas. I, along with the students, tend an acre right on the school grounds. The things I grow go straight to the students plate, fresh and healthy. This blog is about the projects, ideas (pun), and all around happenings on the IDEA Donna farm. If you live in the area and want to help out, feel free to email me at justin.tuley@ideapublicschools.org.
