(90 students/ 14 teachers)
Upon completion of the greenhouse building, the students will create a garden space next to the greenhouse in a former gravel parking lot. Four raised garden beds shared by eight classrooms will be built on the west side of the greenhouse. One accessible raised bed will be shared by two programs that work with students with severe disabilities. Adaptive methods will include greenhouse signage with QR codes linked to step-by-step instructional videos. A book study of Square Foot Gardening will prepare the partner teachers.
