Our garden needs some direction and TLC! We have an incredible space for a garden at PS 005 and envision a fully functioning food garden. Beyond bringing fresh and organic produce to an underserviced community, we hope to educate our students in both growing their own food and creating a healthy diet from said food. We need help revamping and organizing for both efficiency and sustainability. We need a few gardening beds assembled, filled and planted, as well as a greenhouse assembled.
