About this fundraiser

Cushing Elementary is breaking ground on our first community garden! The process began with the fourth graders exploring different sites on the school grounds to determine the best location for the garden. Thinking of the needs of the plants, they settled on just north of the main parking lot by the pine trees and the hill.

The fourth and fifth graders then drew proposed garden designs for the site. After fourth and fifth graders narrowed down the designs by voting, two designs were then voted on by the school to choose the final one.

John Gifford has built two of the garden beds with his math group and the other two were built by Matthew Fischer with the assistance of a Girl Scout troop. To date, supplies for this have been funded by the Girl Scout troop and the Cushing PTO.

This garden is going to support curriculum in many academic areas at all grade levels. In fourth and fifth grade, the students are studying plant and animal structures that allow them to thrive and survive.

Our future needs include: a fence to keep out the deer and rabbits, student designed rain barrels, a compost bin and supplies to build the remaining garden beds next year.

Any donations of equipment, human power, and monetary donations will be much appreciated. Let us shoot for the stars and get together for a Cushing Farmers Market sometime in the future.
