Leave a lasting legacy for the children and families of Edgewood
In 2012, we continue in our efforts towards completing the Edgewood Garden Learning Center. Expanding upon the current Sally Gotcher Children’s Garden the new garden project will incorporate an outdoor classroom space that offers alternative, experiential learning for Edgewood children and families, many of whom have suffered from abuse and neglect that requires Edgewood's individualized attention. The garden will provide:
• A safe and beautiful environment free from the violence and instability many of our children, youth, and families experience in their neighborhoods;
• Experiences that link to and extend classroom curriculum with a focus on nutrition, health, and exercise, and integrate this with arts, science, literacy, and math;
• An introduction to world cultures and a celebration of diversity between generations;
• The role of organic food and sustainability within the community.
This “green” endeavor would not be possible without generous supporters like you
• Help us finish building this state-of-the-art educational setting. Contact Betsy York, Director of Development for more information.
