Gator Garden Proposal

Click image for PDF slides of UPDATED proposal for the 2022/23 school year. We have a big wish list for our garden and are asking for a $15,000 garden fund to be established to support development. If you are interested in helping with planning and/or developing our garden program, please contact garden chairperson, Adrienne Boudreaux via altaheightsffc@gmail.com.

 

See pictures below to see how far we've come!
