Garden Construction at South Range

South Range GE, in partnership with South Range Elementary school, is in the process of developing the “Junior Jets Garden”. This is an exciting project that has centered on student involvement; from the shape of the garden (a jet), to the art projects that will contribute to its decor, to what plants will be grown. South Range GE has been a leader in CATCH implementation, and we are excited to support them as they integrate this great new learning space into their summer and after-school programs.

Healthy snacks keep the students energized and interested in the project.

Soon snacks will come from the garden rather than the grocery store.
