Sharing, by Tamara N. Y., 4th grade
Global Gardens had been talking about how dry the ground was because they don't have a sprinkeler yet. They were so sad that the ground was very dry but then a car shop next to the garden shared their water with them. The teacher, Ms. Oakley was so happy that she asked the kids of they wanted to make thank you cards. We borrowed the water again the next day for Friday community day. The kids were happy to plant.Then a teacher named Mrs. Stacy made a fundraiser to sell suckers for 50 cents on Tuesday and Thursday, and some people gave money with no suckers at all like Diana with a ten dollar bill and Quanah with two dollars. Then some stores like Lowe's shared thingslike picnic tables at a discount, and other stores shared their new soil. Ms. Oakley even invited kids to Global Gardens on Saturday when there was no school. Everyone was grateful for the hoes, shovels, and the wheelbarels. The kids have been planting things like bell peppers, tomatoes, lemon balm, flowers, herbs, peppermint, Mr. Stripey tomatoes, and other various plants. They have already raised close to $40 to buy supplies and other things. The kids will get to paint their picnic tables.
