TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS AND UNITEDHEALTHCARE VOLUNTEERS TO INSTALL LEARNING GARDENS AT POTTER ELEMENTARY SCHOOL MONDAY

What:
On Monday, September 29, Buccaneers defensive end Michael Johnson, tight end Brandon Myers, running back Bobby Rainey, guard Kadeem Edwards, tackle Kevin Pamphile, Buccaneers Cheerleaders and Captain Fear, with the help of UnitedHealthcare volunteers, and local teachers and students, will install five learning gardens at Potter Elementary School (3224 E. Cayuga St., Tampa, FL 33610) to promote the importance of healthy eating habits. The learning gardens will serve as produce gardens, providing students the opportunity to plant and nurture a garden, while learning about the importance of adding vegetables to a young person’s diet.
 
Monday’s visit is the second step in a community project initiated on September 8, when more than a dozen Buccaneers players and 75 UnitedHealthcare employee volunteers gathered at One Buccaneer Place to construct the learning gardens that will be installed. Along with Monday’s event at Potter Elementary, learning gardens are also being delivered and installed at six additional Buccaneers Academy schools: Edison Elementary School, Foster Elementary School, Graham Elementary School, LaVoy Exceptional Center, Sheehy Elementary School, and Sulphur Springs Elementary School. In total, 35 learning gardens are being donated and installed at the seven Buccaneers Academy schools this fall.
