creating a garden

Gardening for Joy at FC Joyce!

After an amazingly successful community crowdfunding campaign, during which more than 27 school champions donated funds to the school garden campaign, including a large donation from local company Plastic Package, FC Joyce Elementary School had their Dig Day! Last Saturday their empty grass lawn was covered in volunteers, garden bed kits, tools and smiling kids ready to get their hands dirty.


Not only did they raise the funds necessary to put in 4 new garden beds, they also received gloves, seeds, shovels, wheelbarrows, and a variety of other tools needed to grow a thriving school garden. With the help of Eli, their Field Volunteer, FC Joyce is well on their way to educating their kids and community about gardening, food, and most importantly, healthy eating!
