About this Campaign

Frank Love is starting an after-school Garden Club!

Gardens are amazing places, and a lot of kids at our schools don't have access to them. They are places where children can experience a direct connection with the earth, learn about sustainability, growth, and the virtue of working hard and getting dirty. They are places that promote physical and mental health. It's a place that they learn that not every carrot is the same color, potatoes grow underground, and that peas snapped straight off the vine are better than candy.

The Frank Love PTA is partnering with the school to develop the club, and we recently received permission from the district to build beds along the embankment west of the play field.  We're starting from scratch though; Frank Love hasn't had a Garden Club, and we'll need all the help we can get. 

We're asking for your help to get our club started. It will allow us to do the following: 

  • Licensed Landscape Planning  - The site is a slope, and we want to ensure we can build raised beds that are safe, hardy, and won't make the district's grounds crew's job any harder.
  • Lumber, Hardware, and Soil - We're planning on building raised beds and planter boxes. We have volunteers who are happy to help, but we need the raw materials to put them together.
  • Tools and Supplies - We have a few hand trowels, but we'll need buckets, hoses, shovels, rakes, pruners, rain barrels, and more.
  • Seed and Starters! - It's not a garden without plants! 

We have big dreams, and we want to grow a garden that can give back to the school for years to come. Please help us get it started!
