Other school gardens out there?
Our community started a school garden last year through donations and a corporate grant through Hidden Valley Ranch. We had huge success with 6 raised beds, and are forming a nonprofit to promote gardening and healthy eating for kids.
I'd like to communicate with others out there who have similar projects.
Anyone else started a similar nonprofit?
Had much success engaging teachers in the process of using the garden in their curriculums?
One of our biggest challenges is that our Western New York climate means that the best part of the growing season is summer when school is out. Has anyone done season extenders (hoop house, greenhouses etc) with kids? They seem like lots of work and expense.
