Laying out the first garden bed.

The Sacred Heart Middle School Garden has been growing successfully. The students have learned a lot about composting and planting, and we hope to continue. The students helped design the layout of the garden and later helped create the garden beds. The goals for the garden were to teach the students how to garden and the importance of eating healthily.

Last year the middle school worked on the construction of the school garden, which took place at the end of the year. After working hard, four large garden beds and six small planting boxes were built. In all the garden beds, there was a reservoir system built beneath. By filling the reservoir system one day it can water the plants for a whole week. The self-watering system has stimulated plant growth throughout the summer making it easier for the plants to get water.

The garden was made possible with the help of generous donors. The plans for the garden are to expand this spring by building more garden beds. We also hope to provide enough produce to supply the school kitchen for healthy meals. One student said, “Eating out of the garden we have built would be an incredible way of showing how much we have learned, how much we have improved, and how well our garden has worked out.”

The garden will help the students learn more about gardening, how to eat healthy, and help the community come together.
