In March, 2011, the Idaho State Department of Education Child Nutrition Services awarded Skyway Elementary a Team Nutrition School Garden Grant. This grant application has been the project of a very hard working committee led by Mrs. Neary and the McPhilomy family. Through the help of volunteers, the committee put the vision into reality! The planting of crops is part of our Physical Education program as a means to teach healthy living and activity.
Thanks to a generous donation by Idaho Fence, our garden is now fully fenced with a gate so families can access it during the summer. If your family would like to adopt the garden for one week during the summer, contact the office or Ms. O'Brien. If you adopt the garden, you would get the gate code so you can pull weeds and harvest (and keep!) all ripe produce.
