Mr. Stewart and Mr. Schultz's all-boys 3rd grade classes work on the garden project.  Ms. McCratic's all-girls 4th grade class works on spreading mulch donated by the City of Siloam Springs.  Mr. Stewart and 4 of his boys moving 1 of 2 boxes full of seed packets donated by Lowe's in Siloam Springs.  Mr. Schultz, Mr. Stewart, and Mr. Brian James load materials for the garden in a pickup truck. 

Southside's "Lettuce Learn & Grow Garden" is taking root!
This project started with a grant from Arkansas Coalition for Obesity Prevention (ArCOP), and would not be possible without the support from local and regional companies/organizations.  As soon as our local Lowe's of Siloam Springs heard about the project, they joined Southside in support.  In addition to ArCOP and Lowe's, the Siloam Springs Street Department made a donation toward the development of this project.  Our 3rd and 4th grade students, staff of Southside Elementary, and families of our children will all eventually benefit from this project.
