Whole Kids Foundation Garden Grant

Thank you Whole Kids Foundation for welcoming us into the family! We are excited to continue our school garden journey with WKF’s support. The timing of the grant is perfect as our Los Angeles heat is upon us and the success of a summer garden plan in our commuter school depends greatly on irrigation. Over the past three summer breaks, I had to drive 30 minutes to school every other day to water because we did not have a timed-irrigation system. I did not wait long to order the parts for this valuable tool!

A big thanks to The Kitchen Community for showing me how to connect the timed-irrigation system to The Learning Garden’s existing drip irrigation. Curious kids were immediately drawn to it and eager to help with the installation. I’m ready to grow some heat-loving, high maintenance summer crops!
