At SFC, we have the privilege of seeing school gardens flourish over many seasons. We want to share the story of Graham Elementary’s vibrant and active garden to applaud their success and inspire others. The garden started in early 2012 when several teachers and the principal came together with a shared desire to build a garden that would benefit the students. Through a former Sprouting Healthy Kids project in partnership with Marathon Kids, SFC supported the school by helping to build the garden team through community organizing efforts. With the support of the principal, teachers, families, staff, students, community volunteers from the Austin Chinese Church next door and elsewhere, the school built four 3x12 ft. raised beds and mulched the pathways.
