Phoenix Day School for the Deaf (Phoenix, AZ)

Phoenix Day School is focused on teaching students to grow lettuce, broccoli, and flowers in planters. The goal is to help them learn that they can grow food anywhere with proper care.  We are a state school and do not use any chemicals or pesticides. We will divert waste from the cafeteria into our compost to create mulch and organic soil.  To reduce pests, we will purchase ladybugs, & praying mantis eggs, teaching students about insects that are beneficial to our environment. Our students have limited communication in their homes due to parents who do not know American Sign Language – about 80% of students struggle to communicate with their parents. Our teachers strive to educate our students about choosing healthy foods. We have a campus kitchen and will use that resource to teach students how to follow recipes and create delicious, fresh food. We are a Title 1 school, meaning many of our parents struggle daily to provide healthy food for their families; this can help!
