It was so great to be back at Stevenson Elementary this week as school is getting back into action. Being their new garden ranger isn’t the only change that has happened over the summer. Their garden space went through a lot of construction, in which, they gained some new space, but removed a dividing fence…

The Accelerated School garden is blooming with sunflowers! The flowers brought some beautiful color to the garden and the students were thrilled by their size.

It is easy to help out
There are many Non-Profits out there, but not all are very effective or frugal. Our people are people who volunteer, intern and give. People who care. We have minimal staff. Our garden rangers fan out to 68 schools weekly. We respect our people by treating their time as precious. If you volunteer, we want you to be exhausted. We feel that if you are going to give up your day to help us and others then the least that we can do is make it worth your while.
