May Sands Edible Teaching Garden
This exciting student project was partially funded by a 2021 grant from the Community Foundation of the Florida Keys. Each class was provided a garden bed and was responsible for the planting, cultivating, and harvesting of their garden. The gardens provided an integrated teaching approach to botany, nutrition, environmental science, sustainability, and entrepreneurship. The Key West Police Department and local businesses, including Mama’s Garden Center and Ace Hardware, also contributed to this garden, making this collaborative grant project a huge success.
