Funding: A Matter of Urgency

Few question the need to prepare students for the complex world into which they will graduate, but the schooling for sustainability movement nevertheless encounters obstacles. Responsbilities for schools’ operations are often dispersed through multiple levels of authority, from the local principal to the federal government, with mandates that sometimes conflict. Washington Elementary and Matthew Sherman Elementary will be the showcase, the start of the School Garden Initiative, “Green Gardens Grow,” from which everyone will learn about the importance and benefits of implementing gardens within schools. We are currently fundraising $55,000 through monetary and in-kind contributions to make these gardens grow and welcome you to join our team.
