I have a love for S.T.E.M. and the outdoors. I am a K-8 gifted teacher, and I want to get my kids excited about S.T.E.M. too. I decided to create a community garden at my school 2 years ago. It was a rough start because I have 2 brown thumbs and couldn’t find any funding. This was our year! We received a volunteer from Americorps and she has been very helpful in starting us up. The kids are loving every aspect of our garden, as they have all been involved with every step. I am tying it into the common core standards with writing (science journals), math (measurement and graphing), non-fiction reading (plant care instructions and gardening websites), and of course S.T.E.M. I am reaching out to the community by inviting families to come in and help us, as our school is located in a farming community. I am reaching out to local businesses for donations. Everyone is working together so nicely. If you select our school as the winner, the money will go into our garden to make it amazing! :)
