What we accomplished:
For kids - children were able to plant, maintain and harvest produce from the garden.
For teachers - teachers were able to utilize the gardening principals to teach lessons in science, mathematics, art, and literature.
For the community - developed a collaborative between the school, local agencies, and volunteers from the community.
We are happy with the success of the BAC garden and the Mecklenburg County Fruit & Vegetable Coalition feels confident that the many resources developed and obtained during the garden project will be utilized in the future for duplicating a garden project in other CMS elementary schools.
