SCHOOL GARDEN

Tiger Towers

HOW WOULD YOU USE THIS GRANT TO HELP YOUR COMMUNITY?

Festus, Festus, quite contrary… How does your garden grow? With seeds of change and children’s smiles, And tower gardens all in a row. Being granted this money towards the initial start of our school tower garden, Tiger Towers, is not just an awesome STEM learning resource, it’s a chance to engage young minds into the world of nutrition. Poor nutrition has a detrimental impact on our students’ abilities at Festus R-6 Elementary, a public school, located south of St. Louis, MO, where 46% of our students receive free and reduced breakfast/ lunches every day. Many of our students are also provided with take-home food bags every week to help battle the poverty stricken homes that they live in. This grant would mean getting to experience foods they may never get the chance to try in their homes, because processed foods can stretch food stamps a lot further than fresh produce. Students would be able to expand their palates, while expanding their minds.
