The children will learn to create and take care of a garden as well as the advantage of eating the foods they grow. Many parents are excited and ready to assist in our garden project! – Alyssa Hall, Preschool Teacher?
Our?school?is located in an area where many children are not taught about proper nutrition.
Like 3-4 year olds around the country, the preschool kids?at Hagginwood Elementary are a lively bunch. They?play outside until they’re exhausted and need to go inside for a nap. Alyssa Hall, the preschool teacher, had the vision of beginning a garden for her kids to expose them to nutrition education, as well as to let out some of their energy in a productive way. With 98% of the students at Hagginwood on free/reduced lunch every day, having a garden with fresh food and hands-on nutrition education could make a huge difference in the lives of these children.
The Hagginwood Elementary Preschool class wants a garden so badly, they started?raising money?with their Change for Change Drive before their garden plan was ready — collecting coins (and dollars) from the community!
