MCR2 Garden of Eatin'
- Laura Piercy, Versailles Elementary School
- Access to Healthy Foods
This spring, Versailles Elementary started a school garden. Our Garden Club has met 4 times already. We have planted seeds and transplanted them into bigger containers as they have grown. We have also assisted with the building of the raised garden beds. We can't wait to put the plants into the beds in a few weeks. The students have discussed what to do with the food harvested. They have suggested: donating the food to the school cafeteria, donating the food to the Buddy Pack program so students can get fresh veggies, selling the produce so the proceeds can be invested back into the garden.
