Girls Prep Bronx Elementary First Grade Gardening Club
Organized by: Liz Estabrooke
I am the K/1 Science Teacher at Girls Prep Elementary School in the South Bronx. This year my first graders are very eager scientists, so I had an idea to start a recess gardening club. I figured I would get 10-12 volunteers who were willing to give up their recess to take care of the large planters in front of the school. Imagine my surprise when I got 44 volunteers! Our school has 12 large planters, but for years now they've been neglected. They are currently growing either weeds or nothing at all. Many of them are completely empty. Our gardening club needs a rich potting mix, seeds, and gardening tools to make them beautiful again. Please consider donating to our cause!
