I am principal of a local elementary school. We have worked with volunteers from the Giving Gardens for the past four years to provide PreK through Grade 5 students the opportunity to plant seeds, care for the seedlings at school, and then travel to the farm to plant their vegetable plant. The experience for students - learning about service work, the history of the farm, and the importance of giving back to their community - has been outstanding. We also established a fifth grade service project in which students spend a full day at the farm preparing planting beds, mulching paths, and working together with adults volunteers to accomplish a variety of tasks. Our school community is fortunate to have the opportunity to work with such an outstanding organization and group of volunteers.
