St. Thomas Aquinas School’s Giving Garden to be Featured at Fairfield’s Farmers Market

FAIRFIELD— Saint Thomas Aquinas Catholic School welcomes all to their vegetable and flower garden! The students have worked hard in constructing a garden full of lush veggies and bountiful flowers, and now it is time to sell them to anyone and everyone. The St. Thomas “Giving Garden” stand will be located at the Fairfield Farmers Market on Sherman Green and will be open for business from 10-2pm on Sunday, July 21st. You might see a hut looking like it was built by thousands of garden gnomes. In fact, the shop design, all of its marketing, pricing strategy and the product design and harvesting were decided by the students themselves. This first course in running a market business includes the following upcoming 7th-grade students: Makayla Cunningham, Hollis Huntington, Nora Lesizza, Claire Russell and Maggie Russell.  Stop by and see them on Sunday—they have many veggies, herbs and flowers to sell!

And because I am a twelve-year-old writing a press release as if I was thirty, I highly recommend going to Saint Thomas Aquinas, where there are creative activities year-round such as “running the garden”. We hope you have fun checking out our garden goods, and thank you for participating in helping the students of Saint Thomas Aquinas learn about business!
