School Garden Application
The Savannah Urban Garden Alliance (SUGA) is pleased to announce that we are currently accepting applications from schools for our School Garden Manager program for the 2018/2019 school year. The program is designed to assist Savannah-Chatham County Public School System teachers in their use of school gardens as teaching opportunities. The purpose of the program is to relieve teachers of the responsibility for the success of the garden beyond those responsibilities that benefit students in the process of learning. Specifically, SUGA will help in the following areas: weeding, watering, and general upkeep of the garden during vacations and holidays; preparation of garden beds in anticipation of planting; scheduling volunteers and proving guidance for capital improvements to the garden; assisting with the propagation of seeds and maintenance of seedlings. The program is intended to benefit schools that currently have a garden. Hopefully, the program can be expanded in the future to help schools establish gardens, but at present, schools must have established gardens with at least one growing season of organic gardening without the use of pesticides or herbicides. Additionally, raised beds must be used for health and safety and for ease of maintenance.
