The funds will be used to build raised bed gardens at the three elementary schools to grow vegetables that will ultimately make their way to the school kitchen and be served to students at the school. The students will build and plant the beds using math and science skills in real-life problem-solving. They will determine the area needed to grow the vegetables and the amount of soil needed to fill the beds.
The Innovation Fund Tiny Grant program is a competitive grant opportunity that provides funding to implement small-scale projects that engage students. Floyd County Schools was selected for a grant in the Applied Learning and focus on STEAM Education category.
