We develop resources that enrich and create a wider variety of experiences and educational opportunities through volunteerism, grants, and community events.

 

Our Beginning

Project Sprout took root in founder Nadia Shabazz’s backyard. Her family had a need for fresh produce since the nearest supermarket only carried semi-spoiled bananas and tomatoes. Shabazz started small, planting leafy greens and berries. When it came time to harvest, she gave extras away to neighbors. She began to see drastic improvements in her children’s health and thought that everyone on her block could benefit. She began inviting neighbors who didn’t have gardens to come plant on her land.

 

“Receiving the grant for binoculars and loupes gives our students the ability to observe the world in a whole new way.”

Penny was on a quest.  A visual artist, she uses binoculars and loupes in her own work. Using binoculars and loupes would give students a chance to look more closely at the world around them.  We were eager to support the purchase of equipment that could be utilized all grades and throughout all subjects. Today, students and staff can borrow the equipment for a number of needs. View Our Projects →
