“We are always looking for ways to strengthen our school community and we also look for ways to give back to others. A school garden will promote our vision of what community looks and feels like at HPE!” – Tenley Luke, Principal
Hollywood Park Elementary School is a small neighborhood school, located in the Hollywood Park neighborhood, between Land Park and South Land Park. We celebrate the charm that our tight-knit, community school has to offer. Students in grades Kindergarten-6th Grade participate in a multitude of exciting learning opportunities. We are hoping to incorporate a garden program into the mix! Our students would love the opportunity for a hands-on learning experience with gardening, water conservation, composting, and recycling.
We do not currently have a school garden or garden program. What we do have, however, is a supportive, passionate, strong community of faculty, students, and parents.
Healthy Planet has developed a 5-branch garden program for us revolving around a new Garden Collaborative, Garden-Based Education, a Garden Buddy Program, space for families to garden, and Enteprise Project where the students design a business around their garden. Healthy Planet will also help us build 12 new 4ft x 8ft raised garden beds and 12 new 2ft x 4ft x 2ft horse troughs, along with a small compost area, 15 rustic hay bales for seating, garden tools, soil, seeds, and other materials.
We need your donation to help us achieve our garden dream!
