GarverGives donation aids school garden program

A recent donation from Garver’s Norman, Oklahoma office will help advance the mission of Earth Rebirth, a nonprofit organization that aims to educate the community by creating sustainable food, energy, and water.

Earth Rebirth’s award-winning Garden Your Own Growth program uses its various education programs to spark economic improvement within its community by using the food it produces. The Norman-based organization now reaches 17 schools, 15 of which are in Norman, including an aquaponics system at Norman High School that supplies its cafeteria, a food pantry program, and a local farmer’s market. Garver gladly supports the hands-on, STEM-based curriculum that allows up to 300 students maintain the gardens themselves.
The $1,500 GarverGives donation will support Earth Rebirth as it increases the number of school gardens; helps purchase winterization supplies for school gardens, and materials to construct hoop housing for raised garden beds and in-ground garden beds while funding transport to each of the 17 partner schools.

“We wanted to work with Earth Rebirth because it represents so many of Garver’s values by using innovative thinking to make an impact on our community,” said Garver Project Engineer Amanda Way. “We’re excited that this donation will allow them to continue the important contributions they’ve already made.”
