Rootbag Program

Directors - Gil Sampson & Dr. Bob Rowe
Implementing Within District 69

The students learn firsthand, literally hands in dirt, about the value of growing and harvesting food.  Since the pilot project was initiated, 640+  students participated in Root Bag.  It has been a huge success and in 2017 we are aiming to be in every elementary school in District 69.
