Let's Build a Garden!
Join the Uncas Garden Committee!
School gardens connect kids to real food.
A garden will provide a hands on way for our children to learn where food comes from. It also is a bridge that can connect the classroom to real life. A garden is a living laboratory for sciences, math, nutrition, exploration, critical thinking, self expression, and fun.
FoodCorps + YOU.
What we need:
- Your experience! Did you plant a great variety of tomato? It would grow at Uncas!
- Your time! Can you come one day a week to help water the garden?
- Your treasure! Can you donate old garden tools? Do you know someone who has lumber for raised beds?
