this week we worked with the paonia junior high 8th graders. it’s been nearly a year since we first started meeting with administration & community members. our goal is to enhance their  science and nutrition curriculum with farm/garden-based educational experiences. yesterday the 8th graders and 5 dedicated adults came together to build two raised beds on campus. we hope to get the site seeded, and a commitment to maintain the bed through the summer (that’s where  the rubber meets the road with these projects).  i am pleased that we got the beds in, this could be the beginning of a wonderful relationship! thank you kampe foundation for rounding up the materials and wcfac for your help.
