brought to you by the Beau Jardin
Thanks to the Walmart Foundation, Seed Change Grant Henry Heights received $5,000 to make innovative changes and support agricultural science education at our school.
It has made me so proud to see kids transformed over the school year from being afraid of bugs to wanting to watch them all day.
ALL students tried new vegetables!!! Some of your wonderful children would ask to pick a piece of broccoli or kale fresh from the garden for a snack!!!
Healthier eating is possible. I would suggest home gardens to every caregiver. They teach so much and offer a sense of pride and ownership in the food you receive from the work :)
Have a wonderful summer and never stop growing.

Henry Heights is proud to house the Beau Jardin: IncrEdible Knowledge Endeavor™, a charitable, hands-on learning garden, on its grounds. This giving garden was founded in fall 2013, by French Immersion Teacher, Tia LeBrun. Our first season ever boasted well over 100 lbs. of food donated to families! Second Grade French Immersion class will continue raising food crops that will be donated to families within our school and the community at large. We hope to “grow” those results exponentially this year.
All classes are welcome to join in the outdoor learning by participating and/or observing what is going on in the garden. Our student body also has access to an outdoor classroom provided with funding from the Lowe’s Toolbox for Education Grant.
Special thanks goes out to the Partnership for a Healthier SWLA and Our Garden Grows, a local business owned and operated by Derek Hasha. Both organizations have been invaluable in this projects implementation and continued success.We have an advertising/donation opportunity to help us!
