A Little School a BIG Dedication
- Miranda Morey, Wells Village School
- Access to Healthy Foods, Community Involvement, Success with Funds, Teamwork
This year the Wells Village school was granted a grant for the new Farm to School Program that was implemented in the beginning of the year. The kids were all excited after they found out not only did we receive a large sum of money for this program but they get to have their very own garden box per class. The farm to school coordinator has been going to the class rooms teaching them about different fruits and vegetables and doing experiments to get them ready for the upcoming ground breaking for the garden boxes in May. We are happy to announce that the community and our local farms are all partnering up to help build these boxes as well as our local food bank to help bring healthy food to not only our school but to the community and needy as well.
