Burnett Community Garden

In the Spring of 2022, Burnett Middle School AVID Coordinator Akilah Graham Allen support from Learn and Serve Tampa Inc in planning a community school garden.  As a result of our connection, the project has received $3000 in funding from the Whole Foods Foundation and $200 from Roots and Shoots Inc. In December 2022, Home Depot joined Burnett students from Rebecca Lawrence's culinary arts class to construct the garden beds. In February 2023, the Florida Extension Office trained students in drip irrigation, and teachers and students began installing automated watering system.  Shenique Johnson is coordinating STEAM efforts to create signage and conduct soil testing. The team is hopeful that there will be an awesome Spring harvest at Burnett!
