The funding will help the students at Landmark Elementary’s project titled “Grow to Give”. The grant will help students expand upon their recycling/composting initiative from the previous year by building a greenhouse at their school. Each class will learn how to grow and take care of plants.
Local seniors and students from Landmark Collegiate will be invited to teach the students about plants and proper gardening techniques. During the summer, students will care for their plants by transplanting them in their home gardens. The plants will be harvested in the fall and sold within the community.
All proceeds will be given to support one local and one global charity.
