Andrew Beal, Matt Gallon & Jared Smith

Andrew, Matt, and Jared's grant will be used to build a horticultural garden in the Almy Wing courtyard. The project builds on previous innovation grants to the Middle School and Lower School and help expand the horticultural curriculum that serves as a model for other schools. 

As the earth’s population approaches 8 billion people, one of the greatest challenges we face is growing enough food to feed everyone. Sustainable agriculture and horticulture are now more important than ever. At Brimmer, students experience the power of horticulture firsthand, as Lower and Middle School students work to grow food that they then eat in their own cafeteria. Through this process they gain an intimate knowledge of the importance of soil conservation, plant physiology, and sustainable horticultural practices.
