How will the funds be used?
- We currently train and provide garden coordinators at four local schools. Funding will provide each garden coordinator with a small stipend and the ability to purchase materials for their school garden program. (We are hoping to expand the program next year to provide garden coordinators to more schools in 2016!)
- We have partnered with the Goodnight Family Sustainable Development Department to offer a Garden-Based Teacher-Training July 20-24 at Appalachian State University. Funds will help provide scholarships for local teachers and child care professionals to attend the training.
We send our sincerest thanks to everyone who has contributed to the project! We send you all our Lettuce Learn love!
