The Garden Project at Carolyn Lewis Elementary School has received another boost of support.
The school has been awarded a $2000 grant from Innovative Solutions for Educational Partnerships (ISEP) for the 2016-2017 school year.
These funds will be used to purchase cooking supplies, food, and gardening supplies to expand the gardening and nutrition program.
The supplies will support: hands-on gardening, nutrition, and cooking classes; healthy school taste tests and snacks; and a school-wide culture of health.
"We, at Carolyn Lewis, are striving to provide a natural forum for cross-curricular student activities that support a wide variety of learning styles, cultivate student curiosity and exploration, support healthy lifestyles, and connect with the community," says Sarah Lane, Food Corps Service Member. "Because of the grant, it is possible to achieve this mission and we are proud to be helping our students grow their pride from the ground up."
Carolyn Lewis Elementary School is a Food Corps Service Site this year.
Their garden, which began last year with a grant from the Conway Public Schools Foundation, has been used for countless lessons with students in grades K-4 for the last two years.
