The Minnesota Excellence in Learning Academy teamed up with us, GROW, to help build and facilitate a new school garden. Students are helping design and pick the location of the garden. GROW will help plan the installation and lead hands-on lessons to provide environmental science and health education. GROW will provide staff support and stability for the garden programming.
We are planning to install this garden May 19th and May 20th. Volunteer times on May 19th are available from 1-3 and 3-5.
Minnesota Excellence in Learning Academy is a charter school located in Maple Grove, MN. This school serves 220 students, 95% of which receive free and reduced lunch. 98% of students are of color. We envision giving these children an outdoor learning space that will connect them to healthy food and nature.
Let's make this project a reality for children at the Minnesota Excellence in Learning Academy
