KIPP Heartwood Academy is a new school with plenty of potential. The community surrounding KIPP is extraordinarily supportive, and though the majority of families are low income, they volunteer their time, energy, and resources to make a positive, and truly educational experience for their children.
All that said, KIPP is still lacking a garden and most importantly, basic education about food!
The teachers and parents at KIPP dream of a day when they can teach their children about healthy eating in a large, thriving garden. And with your help, that day isn?t too far away! We have been hard at work at the Healthy Planet Greenhouse designing a plan for KIPP that includes not only a big, beautiful garden, but the Healthy Growing Garden Curriculum as well!
Here?s where you come in. KIPP needs help, literally from the ground up, to build their school garden. Though there is plenty of open space, there are no tools, garden beds, soil or seeds. This is the most exciting type of garden; in collaboration with KIPP, we created a plan, and with your help, we can build a garden to feed and educate students, parents, and all of the KIPP community!
