Create Garden Classrooms at 3 Low-Income Schools
 
Due to high drop out rates and math performance in the bottom 90th percentile in our partner schools, Jovial is building 3 more garden/ greenhouse classrooms to support state learning standards and increase matriculation rates in low income communities. A 20 year long study on school garden programs by the University of Portland found that 93 percent of schools reported improved student performance in science, 80 percent saw improvement in math, and 72 percent noted improvement in language art. project reportread updates from the field
Help Feed 250 Food Insecure Families in Colorado
 
Nearly 1 in 5 households with children reported food hardship and more than 25% of working families in Colorado do not have enough food to meet their basic needs (U.S. Census Bureau, 2012). By transforming 40 lawns into organic gardens, we will grow enough fresh produce to feed 250 Colorado families. Using gardens as classrooms, participants learn sustainability, environmental awareness, healthy food practices, and how to combat obesity and other health issues associated with food hardships. project reportread updates from the field
