What do you get when you put all these items together? The beginning of a community garden at the Northwood  School. 


The idea was generated a couple months ago by 5th grade students participating in a leadership group. The main goal of the leadership groups in grades 5-8 at Northwood is “What can you do to give back to your community?” It can be their classroom, school or town community. Earlier this year all the leadership groups participated in a food/hygiene drive for the Northwood food pantry, collecting over 1500 items. Since then each group has been challenged to do something at their individual grade level.


The 5th grade students chose to start a school store and a community garden. The school store is still in the planning phase, but the garden has been planted! Thanks to Cavarretta Gardens in Northwood (located right on 1st NH Turnpike) for donating squash, beans, and a couple tomato plants to start the project.


On May 31st in 90 degree heat the students cleared weeds, turned the soil with the 1 pitchfork, planted the veggies and watered them to begin what may become a multi-year project. Their goal is to donate the produce to the local food pantry and possibly the soup kitchen. They are also planning to carry on this project until their 8th grade year where they will then turn it over to the 5th grade with the hope that it will become a mainstay at the school for years to come.


When the students finished the project they were able to celebrate with Popsicles that were brought in by Mr. And Mrs. Thoms.


Not to be forgotten are the other leadership groups who are doing projects such as a theme school dance with the proceeds to go to charity, a food drive that will go until the end of the school year, and support for the 8th grade trip. More to come on these projects as they progress.
