Because we know you’ve been waiting on the edge of your seat, SYG is ready to share our 2021 Wrapped!
We’d like to extend a special thank you to all of the teachers and students we partner with. As a team of 3, the work we do would not be possible without all your hard work and dedication to your schoolyard garden!
- SYG provided 13,043 transplants and 1,973 packets of seeds to schools for their gardens
- 4,915 students were engaged in the garden
- SYG supported 216 schools actively growing
- SYG assisted 65 schools with building new gardens and repairing/expanding existing gardens
- 1,000,000,000,000 cabbage loopers were reported
- 27 children swore they’d never eat kale, but now love it
- 700 students hoped with all their might they could grow pineapples, avocados, and bananas in their garden
- 0 pineapples, avocados or bananas were grown…maybe next year
Thanks for a great year and happy gardening!
