I'm raising money for the
Franklin School Garden
fundraiser led by
J. Frank Cordova
As one of several schools entering the Innovation Zone in Pueblo City Schools (D60) many improvements are on the horizon at Ben Franklin Elementary. Through extended learning opportunities (ELO) students will learn through community member involved activities like gardening and much more! Please check our school web site announcement page for updates.
What I'm Raising Money For
We are starting a school and community garden on school grounds at Ben Franklin Elementary! We need your help to purchase new materials including fencing (our biggest single cost), irrigation supplies, garden gloves and much more. Any little bit helps. Thank you for your help and please spread the word. We will be in touch!
Why You Should Give
With 79% of students at Franklin eligible for free or reduced lunch, healthy, fresh food is not always within their reach. By having a school garden, students, parents, and community members will have the opportunity to learn about plant science (botany), nutrition, food safety and much more while naturally producing their own food to enjoy in the process.
