Tinsley Elementary previously built a garden featuring 15+ medium to large beds. They became neglected through disuse. In 2016, Ms. Townsend spearheaded the garden’s revitalization through the Fresh Start II program. Both students and teachers consistently built their gardening knowledge via our Organic Gardening 101 class series and dedicated time in developing container and vegetable bed gardening techniques.
Tinsley incorporated class time for students to be active in garden, formed a Garden Club, and recruited parent volunteers for the garden. They have future goals to compete in the Houston Live Stock Show and Rodeo Agricultural Science Fair.
