Godwin Heights elementary students are cultivating fruits, herbs and veggies for their families in a new school garden, thanks to a partnership with local non-profit, Hope Gardens.
Between the corridors of West Godwin Elementary is a courtyard area. Last spring, it was all pavement and grass. Now, it’s brimming with sunflowers, zucchini, watermelons, carrots, and cucumbers.
The garden is a collaboration between West Godwin’s TEAM 21 after school program and HOPE Gardens, a Wyoming-based nonprofit that teaches students in grades K through 12 sustainable ways to grow food.
