My name is Kyle Reiser and I am the Resource Coordinator at Roll Hill Academy (100% Free Lunch K-6 Cincinnati Public School Community Learning Center) located in the East Westwood neighborhood of Cincinnati. We are very proud of our Tech-Based Learning Academy and work each day to provide a safe, enriching, and supportive environment for our students and community alike. We are also looking to build more hands-on opportunities for our students to learn through doing by integrating more inquiry-based approaches.
We are hoping to build up a living-learning garden this year on our school grounds where students and community members alike can come learn more through the art and science of gardening. This is no small feat and we are looking for assistance from the generous support of a number of garden experts in the region. That is where you come in! I am reaching out to you today to determine whether you or someone you may know of might be willing to serve as a Volunteer Garden Educator at our school! With an expert located on site, we truly believe we can have the impact in building an even greater connection to our school for students and residents through community programming. We have applied to a number of grants with no success thus far and will continue to look for funding along this route. In the meantime, any assistance, insights, and direction is much appreciated. I look forward to hearing from you to further discuss our vision! Thanks so much!
