Late 2016, I was approached by teachers at my child’s elementary school to help kick-start the school gardens and teach 4th grade Gifted-and-Talented kids an extension on their soil unit using the Texas Essential Knowledge Skills (TEKS) in science.

What started as an organics amendment and cafeteria recycling exercise turned out to be a most successful out-class that included 1st through 5th grades. As of February 2018, the school administration is considering continuing the program into the future … for all 950 elementary school students.

Come see how easily seedlings can grow into spring edibles with just a basic skill sets (and knowledge of soil microbes), and how 250 school kids grow healthy, living soil with a zero budget and only two garden tools — their¬†hands and brains!
