Welcome! This blog follows the building, cultivating, and harvesting of the Lakewood Elementary schoolyard garden in St. Petersburg, Florida. Since January 2009, the Edible Peace Patch Project has been developing innovative community-oriented food system and nutrition educational programs in south St. Petersburg, Florida. Lakewood Elementary is the 1st school to participate in our Garden Education Program!
Last Monday was the first time that our group of students, for the independent study, were able to see their growing plants! We did a quick activity about Photosynthesis to begin, and then the rest of the time was theirs to enjoy!
