The Gardening Club, supervised by Mr. Brian Kurtz, has received a $500 grant from the Exxon-Mobil Educational Alliance Program.

Mr. Kurtz started the club because of student interest. Callie Rourke and Lucy Belknap, who are currently in 8th grade, came to him at the end of their 6th grade year and asked if he would help them start a garden club. The two students had been doing an independent study project with the 6th grade science teacher Mrs. Smith where they had to research an environmental problem and then think of a way to change the problem in their own community. The two students’ solution to their problem was to start a school garden to teach others about where food comes from. Now, Bedford’s own gardening club, a product of two kids’ passion for making a difference, has been granted $500 to keep continuing their great work with nature, The club is open for all students to join.
