Forest Hills Eastern High School

Summary
We continued the implementation of an Edible Schoolyard at Eastern. We started a school-wide composting project and planned the building of a hoop house. Groundswell funds were used to buy the supplies to build the compost structure outdoors as well as indoor collection containers. The rest went towards the purchase of a hoop house. Funds also were used to start seeds for the vegetable garden.

Fostering Lifelong Stewardship
Students know how to prepare soil, germinate seeds, transplant into a garden, compost, plant in a “square foot garden,” health benefits of fresh, local, organic produce, and lots more. Students will be able to implement this knowledge into their current family life, as well as into their futures.
