Blue Point Community Garden
The primary goal of the project is to improve the water supply to sustain Blue Point School's gardens. The current gardens, consisting of three raised vegetable beds and a memorial flower garden, were constructed last year with the help of the school children and the community. Before we can consider enlarging the current gardens we need to ensure that there is easy access to water to keep the gardens hydrated during the growing season. Ideally, we would like to build a water line directly from the school to the garden to provide easy water access for students, teachers, and families who care for the gardens. Any additional funds granted beyond what is needed to develop an irrigation system will be used for compost and soil and other routine maintenance items. These gardens are a great hands-on educational tool to teach the kindergarten through second grade students about growing, harvesting, and cooking food. The food harvested last year by volunteers was shared with the students and community.
KGI is a nonprofit community of over 30,000 people who are growing some of our own food and helping others to do the same.
