Vegetable Planter Boxes at School


Our vision is to sow seeds and nurture vegetable plants for students to consume during nutrition breaks and teach students to be less reliant on consumer products that create waste.


We purchased lumber for a high school woodworking class to build vegetable planter boxes for our Kindergarten class. The two boxes are approximately 8 feet long and 2 feet wide. We planted vegetable seeds in pots in the classroom and germinated the seeds until the weather got warm enough to transplant into the planter boxes. We also planted some seeds directly into the soil. We are now watering the plants everyday and look forward to harvesting fresh produce to enjoy in the classroom. We did this to promote good nutrition choices and provide an opportunity for young students to produce their own food and lower the reliance on grocery store items. The long term effect is learning the importance of reducing our carbon footprint and becoming self-sufficient in food production.

Reflection & Celebration

The plans have grown and are doing very well in their planter boxes. We look forward to harvesting our vegetables and enjoying our nutritious snacks.
