About the Project: The Morey School garden was borne out of incredible enthusiasm, unstoppable commitment, and a wonderfully collaborative team of teachers, administrators, and facilities staff. The garden is used daily for lessons in grades preK-4, and in its first spring season grew over 50 pounds of food! Every student in the school was able to eat salad from their garden. “This is what education should be,” said a third grade teacher at the school. We agree!
