Services/products to be provided to schools: 

We can support the Chase Middle School Garden by purchasing items related to food and nutrition. We also support needs by canvasing the community for support.
We will be mentoring a student garden club, parent gardeners in support, and a parent organization formed to support the garden within the surrounding community. We also are part of a group of teachers who use the garden in their classwork, and we try to support, obtain whatever resources needed.... fulfill their every wish!

Describe your service(s) or product(s): 

Nutrition/ Science Educator under the CYFAR grant providing nutrition education to elementary and middle schools in Topeka. This program supports gardens, with a requirement of a percentage of the produce going to low or no income people or agencies representing them. We currently have an after school program at the Topeka Rescue Mission through school district #501. These kids will be working in the Chase Middle School Garden during the school year as planned, and will work at The Chase Middle School Garden at least one day a week in the summer. We also provide field trips, speakers, guest gardeners, etc. to further engage the kids in our program.
