e-Connections Post Crocker/Riverside

Crocker/Riverside Elementary School is one of only 20 schools across the country to win a $10,000 grant from the organic gardening company Seeds of Change.

The funding will be used to transform a water-thirsty lawn area into a space for enriched learning.

Plans call for a vegetable garden with raised planters, a compost area, rainwater collection barrels and tables with seating to be used as an outdoor classroom in front of the cafeteria. Produce will be offered to the community.
