make the garden area accessible for all children by preparing the ground surface for wheelchairs with materials such as cement, flagstone, rubber strips, or gravel.

Goldman School is building an innovative model of healthier foods and support for local farms including a fully inclusive school yard garden. Goldman School parents, staff, and volunteers recently created two 17' X 14" raised beds for a vegetable garden. The garden project will serve as the foundation for different educational experiences including: planting seeds; observing, measuring and taking care of plants as they grow; harvesting and preparing vegetables to eat; and learning about different foods and healthy eating habits.
We appreciate your support!
