Schoolyard Gardens at Timothy Edwards Middle School, Philip R. Smith School, Pleasant Valley School, SW-International Magnet School

In the Fall of 2013, the SWFA developed a Schoolyard Garden, coordinated by Wayne McKinney (Advanced-Master Gardener), in partnership with the Down to Earth Garden Club; Timothy Edwards Middle School Students in the LEO Club (Leadership, Experience, Opportunity), Faculty Advisers and Administrators at Timothy Edwards Middle School.

The team constructed two 4’x8’ raised garden beds at the school

. Two more were added in the following year. This enables students to pla

nt, care for, and harvest vegetables for use in the school cafeteria.

October 23, 2013: Radishes are in the cafeteria for students to eat!
