Vote for Organic Gardening on Mackworth Island!

Friends School is joining The REAL School, one of our collaborating neighbors on Mackworth Island, in applying for a grant from Nature’s Path, a Canadian cereal company. The purpose of the grant is to expand our gardening program by constructing a solar, hoop frame greenhouse so we can do three season growing. The produce will be used to provide healthier, organic, locally grown food for the children’s lunches and to share with the local food kitchen. You can help by voting for the proposal. (It does require registering with Justmeans) A few minutes of your time will support our efforts to bring more organic gardening and healthy food choices to the Mackworth community of schools.
