What are your future goals?
We are working with a FoodCorps service member to expand our garden beds and garden based curriculum in the classroom. We would like to have fruit trees eventually, and a hoop house. We would like most of the food to be used in the cafeteria and for nutrition education in the classrooms.

What is your most significant need?
With our FoodCorps Service member, our biggest need is supplies, but without them our biggest need would be a garden coordinator. We have applied for a Whole Kids Foundation garden grant to help supply some of our material needs.
