Last year our school, Homer Flex High School, received a grant from the Homer Farmers Market to fund our garden. With this money we were able to purchase soil amendments, planting supplies, and garden tools.
During last spring over half our student population participated in planting seed starts, and prepping and planning the garden.
Over the course of the summer a few students volunteered to help manage the garden. In the fall we had an amazing carrot crop and made fermented veggies.
Thank you, Homer Farmers Market, for providing us with a grant to help our garden grow.
