Concord Friends and Families, 

We are applying for an Outdoor Classroom Garden Mini-Grant, offered by Arkansas Farm Bureau. Our project plan for starting a garden is to provide students with an outside hands-on learning environment. Students will participate in hands-on experiments and activities designed for each core subject. This also provides a therapeutic sanctuary for our students and adults while working on self-regulation and social/communication skills. With the help and support from our community, we can bring a positive experience of agriculture to our classrooms. We are looking for monetary donations from outside organizations and businesses and in-kind donations such as material, labor, equipment, etc. If you are interested in helping or participating in making this project a success, please contact Chloe Martin at 870-668-3757 or
