Opening Raises $7000 for Organic Garden at Fernbank Elementary
We celebrated our opening giving back to the community we serve. 100% of ticket sales generated from our pre-opening services were donated to help rebuild the organic garden at the new Fernbank Elementary School opening this year.
Fernbank’s Farm to School Initiative takes an “edible education” approach by using the garden to promote health & good nutrition to students through curriculum & school-wide tastings. The school garden is used as a learning tool in every grade level, from kindergarten where they study butterflies and parts of plants, to fifth graders who participate in planting days and chef tastings.
