Cory Fuller joins Katie’s Krops as the Director of Education after four years of teaching middle school at Pinewood Preparatory School where she was Katie's sixth grade Science teacher.  Before working with Katie at PPS, Cory graduated with her Master’s degree from the University of Connecticut in 2006.  She taught outdoor education at a Pre-K to 3rd grade elementary school while finishing her degree, and has also taught 4th-7th grade at different schools here in South Carolina.  Her passion is the outdoors and teaching in it.  Cory joins Katie’s Krops with the same dream as Katie to help those in need and to inspire the younger generation to adopt a healthy lifestyle.

Katie’s Krops Garden in the Garden State!

Through Katie’s Krops and my gardening adventures I have met so many amazing people. I especially love meeting other kids who are making a difference in the world. In 2009 I was honored as Build a Bear Huggable Hero along with 14 other amazing individuals. We spend 3 days together bonding and learning about each other efforts.

I was thrill when several weeks ago one of my fellow 2009 Huggable Heroes contacted me about starting a Katie’s Krops garden in New Jersey. Jenny and I have joined forces and last weekend the first official Katie’s Krops garden in the garden state has tilled ground. I want to thank Jenny and all of the New Jersey volunteers for help Katie’s Krops grow and expand. I look forward to sharing photos and stories from the new garden. Thank you Jenny!

 

Congratulation to the 10 Winners of the Katie's Krops Grants!

 

Selecting the winners of the spring 2011 Katie’s Krops grants was a huge challenge. We received over 200 fantastic grant applications. The plan was to select just two winners but that proved impossible. There were seven applications that stood out and the decision was made to give all seven applicants the grant. There were also three applications that I couldn’t afford to give a full grant to but wanted to help. They received a mini grant.

The winners are:

-Aiden from New York

-Ms. Babin’s Class from Georgia

-Chance, Canyon & Hunter from Arkansas

-Martha from North Carolina

-Phoebe from Massachusetts

-Rockella from New York

-Ms. Smith’s Class from Kentucky  

-The mini grant winners-

-Dominic from Georgia

-Ted from Wisconsin

-Zachary from Pennsylvania  

Please check back to read about the winners gardening adventures and about the people they help in their communities. They will be writing blogs for Katie’s Krops and sharing their photos.

It is my dream to be able to fund additional grants. If you are interested in receiving a grant from Katie’s Krops to start a garden to feed people please continue to check the website for details.
