FWSU was blessed to have a visionary Superintendent who understood and appreciated the benefits of a wellness program.

In July 2014, Superintendent Ned Kirsch was excited with the addition of FWSU’s employee garden beds — he was ready to grow!

Each year, the SU’s office staff planted gardens and enjoyed the benefits they provided. You would often find Ned tending to his plot in the district’s garden, using it as a lab to see which kinds of vegetables might grow Artichokes? Yes, he tried them.

With the recent loss of Ned, the FWSU staff all agreed that they wanted to rebuild new garden beds and dedicate them in his honor.

In his memory, through a Central Office team collaboration that Ned would have loved, the staff have created an area where they can enjoy the gardens, keeping close to their hearts, a belief in what is possible
