Emily A. Fifield Elementary joined the SLUG program in the fall of 2008. There are 5 teachers gardening in their classrooms, working with about 100 students. Fifield has 8 raised beds on their site, and are turning them in to beautiful garden plots. In addition to the raised beds they are also participating in the indoor gardening program. Fifield is looking forward to incorporating gardening into both daytime and after-school instruction.

Here are the first vegetables that the Fifield grew in our outdoor gardens. These grew over the summer with no attending to the beds. I went out today to weed the gardens before school begins and was pleasantly surprised at what I found. Very Exciting!
