MMS Garden Success
Moundsville Middle School built and planted a school garden. Produce was eaten by students over the summer and utilized in health classes and on the school salad bar in the fall.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Teachers and students worked as a team to build and develop the school garden.

How did you accomplish your goals?

Grant funding and volunteer work hours helped us to accomplish our goal. Our local co-op business allowed us to purchase soil and mulch at cost. That allowed us to expand our garden.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

Seek additional grant funding and continue to utilize the school garden in summer school programs. Continue to maintain and plant throughout the school year.
