You can grow your own food. We can help.

STEM school garden

Bainbridge Middle School is a STEM (Science Technology Mathematics and Engineering) school and provides students with a way to think as engineers in order to solve problems using math, science and technology. We currently have a composting initiative in place, but we do not have a garden for the school to use our own compost. The garden would be a hands on, real world experience that would allow students to work together and share their knowledge of earth, life and physical science while teaching members of the community the importance of keeping fresh produce in their diets. Part of the STEM life science curriculum focuses on a health initiative that shows how a diet of locally grown fresh produce helps our body systems to thrive. We would take the local produce that was grown in the garden and offer it up to the community through our school STEM night. Parents and members of the community would be invited to visit the school and our garden. Our parents and community members would be able to try samples from our garden while learning about the STEM gardening initiative.
