The Geiger School Garden, funded by the Lewiston Education Fund (LEF), is flourishing in the summer sun. Geiger Elementary School Teacher, Ms. Carla Gill, recently invited LEF board members to her outdoor classroom garden, located on the Geiger School grounds. Students have decorated signs with their names to mark their garden plots and vegetables and flowers are growing at an astonishing pace given the abundance of rain and sunshine in the past few weeks.
Work will continue on the garden through the summer and harvest will provide another way for Ms. Gill to incorporate the garden learning into her curriculum. The Geiger School Garden is the creative child of Ms. Gill, who is a 2011 LEF Grant Recipient.
