New Project


Our idea was to have a group of students build the boxes off site with adult supervision of course. Once the boxes are completed the class would deliver them, plant them with crops of their choosing and the after-school program would tend them and send the class updates on the progress of the plants.
Once the plants are ready to harvest the students would return, harvest and eat!


The boxes could ideally be 3’x4′ and made of wood, plus hardware, wood glue
Landscape liner. They would require 4 bags of 1.5 liters of organic soil
The YMCA will supply the seeds.
