Grant Type: Project Learning Garden
Description: Ford was one of our pilot PLG schools, initiated in 2011. A couple years ago,
Captain Planet Foundation returned to join Ford Elementary for a garden work day in their Victory gardens; tying garden learning to a history lesson.
With several work stations that included “make your own salad dressing” and “mix your own rainbow-colored salad,” the students were able to enjoy the literal fruits of their labors while learning about historical gardening, seasonality, and practicing healthy eating and cooking skills!
