The Latest with Silver & Black Give Back
Spurs GM RC Buford Spends a Morning with Team Up Challenge Semi-finalists at the Food Bank
RC Buford, Spurs General Manager and President of Sports Franchises, and the Spurs Coyote visited the San Antonio Food Bank on Tuesday, November 1st with two Team Up Challenge semi-finalist teams.
The New Frontiers Charter School's 7th grade and the Zachry Middle School's Garden Club spent time learning about how to build and maintain a community garden from the Spurs Community Garden Manager, Geoffrey Martin, before going out and volunteering in the garden with Mr. Buford and the Coyote.
They harvested green beans, planted onions, and inspected other crops for harmful insects. Both of the semi-finalists will be constructing their own community gardens as part of their Team Up Challenge projects, and enjoyed learning about what lies ahead in the coming months.
For a full list of the 20 semi-finalists and to see footage of the visits, please visit teamupchallenge.com and check out the newest issue of The Update below.
The Team Up Challenge is a service-learning initiative that gives students a chance to take what they're learning in the classroom and apply it to the real world, away from formal instruction. It connects life experiences with curriculum, bringing education alive in powerful ways.
