Farm to School Spotlight

Revitalization in Broward County
Parkway Middle School in Lauderhill was one of the Florida Farm to School’s Golden Shovel Award Winners in the Best Revitalized Garden category. Since the schools beginning four years ago, with a focus geared towards robotics and aerospace programs, gardening was only just a fun addition. In 2013, STEM teacher for horticultural sciences, Scott Savage, began to shift the focus towards science and look at hydroponic gardening.

“This year, we have fully implemented the new Horticultural Science aspect to the STEM program. We expose students to the agricultural and nutritional aspects of gardening and eating healthier through curriculum such as Gardening for Grades,” explained Savett. Today they have an edible garden with garden beds, garden towers, a drip hydroponic system, a deep-water culture hydroponic system and a wicking hydroponic system.

Savett encourages all teachers to look for grants and not to give up if they do not receive one. He suggests going to a local Home Depot or Lowes for garden materials such as soil. These stores are often eager to help a school implement or expand their garden. “Next year, we plan on taking the Horticultural Science program to another level where we will grow more food and have after-school seedling distribution to students, staff and parents. We will also look to develop a partnership with local restaurants and learn how to make our crops marketable, further educating my students in entrepreneurship and making our school gardens financially sustainable,” said Savett. Check out their blog [ http://parkwaystem.weebly.com/horticultural-lab ]here to track the students’ progress and watch the garden expand.

Nardonne Does It Again!

As many of you know Quin competed in the State Piano Competition this weekend. Thanks to all the support he has received, he had his best showing ever. Quin received 3 State first place finishes (in Solo, Hymn, and Sight Play) and one second place finish in the concerto! Besides bringing home several trophies, he received a $600.00 check for his second place in the concerto which is considered the most difficult category with the strongest competition.  Parkway is so proud of all his hard work.  And Congratulations to Quin, his parents and all of his teachers.  What a delight to report something so wonderful!
