Hardy Elementary School awarded Seeds for Education Grant

The Chattanooga Area Pollinator Partnership and the Tennessee Valley Chapter of Wild Ones have awarded the first Seeds for Education grant to Hardy Elementary School, a Chattanooga public school in the Glass Street neighborhood.

Described in the grant application, Hardy’s 4th and 5th grade students, teachers, parents and community volunteers will convert a grassy area of the school grounds into a pollinator garden, providing a hands-on, experiential education opportunity involving science and art teachers and students. The students will work with Mary Beth Sutton and the Tennessee Student Environmental Alliance (TenneSEA) program and will also be involved in the Monarch Watch program and report their findings.

Congratulations, Hardy Elementary School!
