The Community Wellness Project reports:
After months of working with our community and Chimacum School District partners, last week Jason Lynch, CES Principal, submitted an application to the "Healthy Kids-Healthy Schools" grant program through OSPI. If fully funded, Chimacum will be able to: purchase kitchen equipment to support components of a Farm-to-Cafeteria program; build school gardens at Chimacum Creek Primary and Chimacum Elementary/Middle School/Pi Program; replace decaying playground equipment on the Elementary playground. The grant is very competitive, so cross your fingers! In the process, we were able to create connections, dream big, and build a solid foundation for future grant applications. Here is one example of an idea for a garden layout at Chimacum Elementary!
