Moravia Park Elementary School "Garden Design Challenge"

ESOL students learned about garden design from Seth Wheeler of NorthWind Energy & Earthworks and participated in a school wide design competition. The raised garden beds were then built based on the designs, filled with plants and unveiled at the annual family multicultural night in late May of 2017.

At Moravia Park Elementary, garden bed designs are more than just plants and dirt. Last year, arts integration coach Samantha Feld started the garden club with only scraps for a budget; literally. They had to dumpster dive to get the appropriate tools  and materials to start a garden that  grew kale and collard greens. Now wanting to expand the garden project, the Impact fund helped Samantha and her students grow the potential of the school gardens.
