My name is Ms. G and I teach 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade in an urban environment in Jersey City, NJ. I am asking for donations to help build a school garden. My goal is to give underprivileged students an agricultural experience to enhance their daily life skills. It is important for my students to be engaged in their learning experience while also learning to build the foundational skills they need to hopefully take them through college and onto a successful career. The use of garden is sure to teach them patience, discipline, and responsibility as well as expose them to different type of plants, fruits, vegetable. Additional to plants, students will also be able to identify something that may be deemed useless and find a purpose for it in our garden. Unfortunately, our district tries their best with this but sometimes falls short, not allowing for all students to be exposed. Additionally, most of them are not being exposed to fresh fruits and vegetables or the planting process at home either. I have 60 students who would love to care for a garden.
