Growing The Schenk School Garden

We have the opportunity to have a dedicated garden educator at Schenk through the ROOTED Farm to School Americorps program! This would help the school to engage more teachers and students with the school garden space – and incorporate more garden and outdoor education into the school day. It would also help build capacity through garden volunteer facilitation – and grow connections to community artists, builders, and gardeners who might be able to donate time, materials, and expertise to the garden. The Americorps garden educator could also work with teachers to imagine new and creative ways to use the space. The cost of the program for one year is $3000. It costs an additional $500 to have the educator continue through the summer months.

Please consider making a donation to the Schenk School Garden “Farm to School” program via the Schenk PTO!

  • Checks can be mailed to: Schenk Elementary, Attn: PTO, 230 Schenk Street, Madison, WI 53714.
  • Or, to give a donation through PayPal, you can send an email to schenkpto@gmail.com to get instructions.
  • More information about the Americorps Farm to School Program.
