Every school should have a garden. Check out this great space that Maie Ellis Elementary in Fallbrook has for their new school garden! I am thrilled to be a part of this project. I have started designing and building raised beds as well as figuring out other logistics. The plan is to to have the garden ready for when the children come back to school in the Fall. .
Pictured here is Dr. Gonzalez, the Principal, and champion behind making this happen. Without full investment from school administration and the school community, these projects are not feasible. Gardens are a holistic way to bring so much value to the children including nutrition education, environmental education, physical play, STEM learning, language development, socio-emotional development, and so much more. .
