About this Grantee

To help their special needs students develop a sense of community and view themselves as valued community members, Ms. Trimmer and her partners implement several outreach and garden projects. Working with local high school volunteers, students build bird feeders and plant a garden. Students also take field trips to learn about services in the community and to understand the importance of food and its origins.
